Title: North West environmental statistics 1997-98
Author: Environment Agency North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This booklet provides a summary of waste and environment-related statistics for the Northwest Region during the financial year 1997-98. The Environment Agency regards this public action as part of its ongoing commitment to provide useful information on environmental issues. The EA hopes it will be of value to Local Authorities, operators of waste management facilities, and a wide range of others (individuals and organisations) with an interest in waste planning and environmental issues. Waste information in this booklet is compiled from site returns collected from licensed waste man agement facilities. Users should be aware that the information is also primarily deposit rather than arisings data and does not, therefore, include information on waste movements (including waste exported from the region for disposal). Neither does it include information on wastes which are recycled or recovered. Hopefully, data quality is improving year on year as better collection and handling systems are introduced.
