Author: Environment Agency Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
This document analyses the Strategic Waste Management Survey of the East Midlands Region. A survey of waste landfilled within the East Midlands Planning Region was undertaken by the Environment Agency. The purpose of the survey was to: review the quantity and type of waste going for landfill; determine patterns of waste movement; assess future demand for landfill capacity; assess existing and potential incinerator capacity; assemble data for use in development of a regional waste management strategy; assemble data to assist the monitoring of progress in meeting Government landfill waste reduction targets. The survey described in this report intends to overview the use and possible future demand for landfill capacity within the East Midlands Planning Region. Data collated for the report are from systems developed by the former Waste Regulation Authorities and from Waste Management Plans prepared under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. Controlled waste, as defined in the Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994, is primarily industrial, commercial and household waste and is simply referred to as "waste" in the report.
