Waste—recycling(Question No 1754)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 25 August 2011:

(1) What is the breakdown of the different total wastestream sources that are presently disposed in landfill in the ACT (a) by tonnage and (b) by proportion of the total.

(2) What proportion of this material from each of these wastestream sources that comprises current readily recyclable materials.

(3) What is the breakdown of the different sources of waste that are presently recovered from the total wastestream in the ACT, that is a breakdown of the present ~70% figure presented in the 2011-12 Budget Paper No. 4, p 73 (a) by tonnage and (b) by proportion of the total.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) ACT NOWaste maintains waste to landfill according to four separate streams. In 2010-11, waste to landfill was delivered in those streams as follows:

(a) Household collected waste (comprising ACT household kerbside waste and Queanbeyan City Council waste): 74,227.7 tonnes or 27.7%

(b) Private delivery from domestic sources: 16,576.9 tonnes or 6.2%

(c) Construction and demolition waste: 45,261.5 tonnes or 16.9%

(d) Commercial and industrial waste: 132,022 tonnes or 49.2%

(2) ACT NOWaste does not maintain data about what proportion of the four waste streams set out above comprise readily recyclable material.

(3) ACT NOWaste does not maintain data about resource recovery as categorised in the four waste streams set out above and cannot advise of the breakdown by tonnage or proportion of the total.
