NSW Local Government Waste and Resource Recovery Data Report 20052006

Executive summary 20052006 and 20062007


This publication contains the first two of a series of annual reports the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water NSW (DECCW) intends to publish outlining the relative performance of kerbside and drop-off waste, recycling and resource recovery services in NSW, as reported by NSW councils. Both the 200506 and 200607 reports detail information on dry recyclables, organics, residual waste, clean up, hard waste collections and drop-off facilities throughout NSW. Although the reports are published together, trend data will not be available until year three, instead broad comparisons can be drawn between the two reports and from some limited data available from 20002001. In general: Owing to an improvement in the level and scope of recycling collection services provided by councils in NSW, there have been collection increases in all recycling categories. The largest growth in amounts collected, as well as percentage of households receiving a collection service, has been in organics with the second largest being in dry recyclables. Dry recyclables collected at the kerbside have increased since 200001 by 212,000 tonnes, a 47% increase. Increases have been relatively constant each year. Household organics collections have tended to fluctuate each year since 200001 however there has been an overall increase of 94,549 tonnes collected, a 49% increase since 200001.

Introduction
In August 2006 and 2007 the Department of Environment and Climate Change NSW (DECCW) surveyed all NSW local government councils to determine the characteristics of the waste and resource recovery services available to residents of NSW. The survey incorporated the information required under the National Environment Protection Measure (NEPM) for Used Packaging Materials1, in addition to information relating to domestic resource recovery as well as waste collection and disposal. The NEPM contains a requirement for all local councils that provide kerbside recycling collection services to report on a number of aspects relating to their system. This information is published in the National Environment Protection Council (NEPC) annual report. DECCWs data survey builds upon the information collected under the NEPM by reporting on the suite of waste, recycling, and resource recovery achievements of councils in NSW. This report will provide consolidated information for councils to use in making decisions and to enable them to assess their own performance. The information will also help decision makers at all levels of government to measure progress against the goals and targets in the NSW Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy2.

The NSW Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2003 (The Strategy) is designed to provide a continuing framework that will guide actions to achieve the State Governments policy objectives of minimising environmental harm from waste generation through to disposal, and conserving resources and maximising secondary resource use. The Strategy identifies four key result areas: preventing and avoiding waste; increasing recovery and use of secondary resources; reducing toxicity in products and materials; reducing litter and illegal dumping. The Strategy identifies a target for the municipal waste stream which aims to increase the recovery rate from 26% in 2000 to 66% by 2014. This publication contains the first two of a series of annual reports DECCW intends to publish outlining the relative performance of kerbside and drop-off waste, recycling and resource recovery services in NSW. Although they are published together they are still separate reports. It is anticipated that future reports will continue to build upon and improve the foundation of this reporting framework, and to provide an accurate measure of the States progress towards sustainable consumption patterns and sustainable resource management practices. Dry recyclables collection This section contains information relating to kerbside dry recyclables collection services provided by councils. Organics collection This section contains information relating to kerbside organics collection services provided by councils. Residual waste collection This section contains information relating to kerbside residual waste collection services provided by councils. Clean up/hard waste collection This section contains information relating to the hard waste collection services provided by councils. Recyclables and organics drop-off facilities This section contains information relating to council owned or operated recycling collection facilities where residents are able to take their recyclables.

Methodology
The performance of these services has been consolidated to calculate overall waste generation and resource recovery rates in each local government area to enable comparisons to be made and to help councils and communities work towards meeting the 2014 target. However, when comparing figures from different local government areas, consideration should be given to regional variations in consumption patterns and available services. Average waste generation rates per household and per capita have also been developed to compare data at an individual level, particularly with the aspirational targets set for the State. In the next year of publication DECCW intends to publish trend data on performance in each category, however in the first two years only broad comparisons can be drawn.

The population figures that have been used for per capita calculations are derived from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) population estimates3. The population figures used are from, and refer to, population projections as at 30 June 2006. DECCW uses the figure from the start of the financial year as the ABS does not release the next years figures until December. The ABS data is the most accurate projected figures available and is consistent from year to year. The environmental benefits of recycling have been quantified for the materials recycled in NSW during 200607 using DECCWs Environmental Benefits of Recycling Calculator4. The calculations are based upon Life Cycle Analyses of the materials that comprise the kerbside recycling stream. The benefits have been categorised as savings in landfill space, greenhouse gas emissions, and water and energy use to enable effective comparison and ease of interpretation. The council region classifications used within this report are based on the designations used in Schedule 1 of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 5. The Sydney Metropolitan Area (SMA) means the area comprising the local government areas of Ashfield, Auburn, Bankstown, Baulkham Hills, Blacktown, Botany, Burwood, Camden, Campbelltown, Canada Bay, Canterbury, Fairfield, Holroyd, Hornsby, Hunters Hill, Hurstville, Kogarah, Ku-ring-gai, Lane Cove, Leichhardt, Liverpool, Manly, Marrickville, Mosman, North Sydney, Parramatta, Penrith, Pittwater, Randwick, Rockdale, Ryde, Strathfield, Sutherland, Sydney, Warringah, Waverley, Willoughby and Woollahra. The Extended Regulated Area (ERA) means the area comprising the local government areas of Cessnock, Gosford, Hawkesbury, Kiama, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Newcastle, Port Stephens, Shellharbour, Shoalhaven, Wingecarribee, Wollongong and Wyong. The Non-Regulated Area (NRA) means the area comprising the remaining local government areas in NSW. This classification system has been used to reflect the geographical factors that affect waste management activities and the different regulatory conditions relating to waste operating within NSW. DECCW acknowledges the cooperation and contribution of all NSW councils in providing the data presented within this report. Please note that the information within this report is dependent on the accuracy of data supplied by councils in the 2005 06 and 200607 survey. While DECCW has made an effort to verify the information supplied by councils wherever possible, DECCW is not in a position to validate the raw data that forms the basis of this report.

NSW Local Government Waste and Resource Recovery Data Report 20052006

Executive summary 20052006


In August 2006 the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water NSW (DECCW) surveyed all NSW local government councils to determine the nature and characteristics of the waste and resource recovery services available to residents of NSW. The survey incorporated the information required under the National Environment Protection Measure (NEPM) for Used Packaging Materials6 in addition to information relating to overall domestic resource recovery as well as waste collection and disposal. The NEPM contains a requirement for all local councils that provide kerbside recycling collection services to report on a number of aspects relating to their system. This information is published in the National Environment Protection Council (NEPC) annual report. DECCWs data survey builds upon the information collected under the NEPM by reporting on the suite of waste, recycling, and resource recovery achievements of councils in NSW. This report will provide consolidated information for councils to use in making decisions and to enable them to assess their own performance. The information will also help decision makers at all levels of government to measure progress against the goals and targets in the NSW Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 7. The NSW Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2003 (The Strategy) is designed to provide a continuing framework that will guide actions to achieve the State Governments policy objectives of minimising environmental harm from waste generation through to disposal, and conserving resources and maximising secondary resource recovery and use. The Strategy identifies four key result areas: preventing and avoiding waste; increasing recovery and use of secondary resources; reducing toxicity in products and materials; and reducing litter and illegal dumping. The Strategy identifies a target for the municipal waste stream which aims to increase the recovery rate8 from 26% in 2000 to 66% by 2014. Tackling consumption is perhaps the greatest challenge facing efforts to reduce the amount of waste produced by our society. The amount of waste we create is strongly linked to how much we spend and buy. Action to avoid and prevent waste needs to be considered at every step across the life cycle of goods and materials with a focus on those points in the supply chain where the impact and results will be most effective. This is the first in a series of annual reports DECCW intends to publish outlining the relative performance of kerbside and drop-off waste, recycling and resource recovery services in NSW. It is anticipated that future reports will continue to build upon and improve the foundation of this reporting framework, and to provide an accurate measure of the States progress towards sustainable consumption patterns and sustainable resource management practices. This report contains information about the following services: Dry recyclables collection This section contains information relating to kerbside dry recyclables collection services provided by councils.

Dry recyclables collected at the kerbside


Most councils have been successful in requiring and obtaining accurate reporting from the facilities receiving and processing their recyclables. However, it is acknowledged that some councils may have only been able to provide an estimate of tonnes of recycled material. In NSW 116 councils provided a kerbside recycling service, reaching 91% of households and over 95% of the population (Figure 1). The availability of kerbside recycling to households varied across NSW with kerbside recycling services provided to 98% of households in the SMA, 99% in the ERA, and 68% in the NRA.

Figure 1: NSW councils providing kerbside recycling collection services

DECCW acknowledges the co-operation and contribution of all NSW councils in providing the data presented within this report. Please note that the information within this report is dependent on the accuracy of data supplied by councils in the 200506 survey. While DECCW has made an effort to verify the information supplied by councils wherever possible, DECCW is not in a position to validate the raw data that forms the basis of this report.

An average of 260 kg of dry recyclables was collected per household receiving a domestic recycling service in 200506. On a weekly basis this equates to an average of 5.0 kg per household or 1.8 kg per person. Of the 116 councils in NSW that provided a kerbside recycling service, 39 had an average weekly yield of less than 4.0 kg per household per week, and 30 had an average weekly yield in excess of 5.5 kg per household per week (Figure 2).

In 200506 there were eight different dry recycling collection systems used by NSW councils (Table 1). The most common dry recycling collection system provided by councils was a fully commingled 240L Mobile Garbage Bin (MGB). In 200506, 59 councils used this system. Sixty-six councils used DECCWs preferred collection systems for dry recyclables (240L fully commingled MGB or dual 120L MGBs for paper and containers). The adoption of standardised collection systems facilitates education and improved understanding and use of recycling systems by residents12.

Figure 3 compares average weekly household dry recyclables yield with collection system type. While 120L MGB and Bag collection systems show the highest average yield for 200506, only 5 councils use these systems. The councils using 120L MGB or Bag systems are all based within the NRA, and collectively service approximately 7500 households. Conversely the 66 councils utilising DECCWs preferred collection systems are geographically spread across the SMA, ERA and NRA and together service over 1.4 million households.

In 200506 the total quantity of dry recyclables collected at the kerbside in NSW was 609,331 tonnes: 378,154 tonnes from the SMA 122,543 tonnes from the ERA 108,634 tonnes from the NRA. There was an increase in the quantity of dry recyclables collected at the kerbside each year since 200001 (Figure 4). This is an increase of over 159 000 tonnes or 36% since 200001.

Recycling results in the avoidance of environmental impacts associated with resource extraction, materials production and manufacturing processes. The environmental benefits of recycling 609,331 tonnes in NSW during 200506 are demonstrated using the Environmental Benefits of Recycling Calculator. The indicators used in this calculator are greenhouse benefits, energy and water savings, as well as landfill space saved. All benefits are net benefits, that is, they are the benefits after the average impacts of collection, transporting and reprocessing have been accounted for. Utilising the Environmental Benefits of Recycling Calculator, the environmental benefits of recycling 609,331 tonnes of resources are: Energy savings: more than 10 million (10,147,971) gigajoules Water savings: more than 10 million (10,092,617) kilolitres Greenhouse gas savings: approx 306 thousand tonnes (305,969) tonnes CO2 equivalent. As shown in Figure 7, this results in the equivalent of 73,486 cars removed from the road, 46,985 households annual electricity requirements not being used and 107,906 peoples water usage being saved. The recycling of 609,331 tonnes of resources also saved 1,678,929 m3 of landfill space. Recycling that otherwise would have gone to landfill

Garden organics collected at the kerbside


It is acknowledged that some councils have only been able to provide estimates of the garden organics material recovered. Fifty-three NSW councils provided a kerbside garden organics collection service, reaching 48% of households and 60% of the population (Figure 8). The availability of kerbside garden organics services to households varied across NSW with kerbside garden organics collection services provided to 54% of households in the SMA, 44% in the ERA, and 31% in the NRA.

Figure 8: NSW councils providing kerbside garden organics collection services

An average of 218 kg of garden organic material was collected per household receiving a domestic organic service in 200506. On a weekly basis this equates to an average of 4.2 kg per household or 1.3 kg per person.

Household garden organics gross yield (kg/week)

In 200506 there were 7 different garden organics collection systems used by NSW councils (Table 2 below). The most common garden organics collection system provided by councils was a 240L MGB collected fortnightly. In 200506, 31 councils used this system. For councils with high volumes of garden organics (175kg or more per household per year), DECCWs Preferred Resource Recovery Practices by Local Councils Guide recommends a 240L MGB collection fortnightly. For councils with low volumes of garden organics (less than 175kg per household per year), the DECCW Guide recommends a tied and bundled collection three to four times per year. As demonstrated in Table 2, there are a number of alternative collection systems that have been adopted by councils with intermediate garden organics generation rates.

Figure 10 compares average weekly household garden organics yield with collection system type. The 140L MGB collection system shows the highest average yield for 200506, however, only one council used this system; Lismore Council used this system in 20056 to co-collect food organics and garden organics. The 31 councils who used the fortnightly 240L MGB collection system were geographically spread across the SMA, ERA and NRA and collectively serviced 738,000 households.

Since 200001, there has been a gradual increase in the amount of garden organics collected in NSW (Figures 11 and 13). This combines with the similar pattern of increase in the average yield per household, (Figures 12 and 13). The overall increase may be due to more councils offering a kerbside garden organics collection service, whereas the increase in yield per household may be attributed to greater awareness from education and an easing off of drought conditions, especially in the Greater Sydney Region. However, households may be limiting greater yields than those accounted for in this report due to the use of on site treatment processes such as home worm farming, composting and the provision of a council kerbside chipping service.

Residual waste collected at the kerbside (taken to landfill and/or AWT)


One hundred and fifty NSW councils provided a kerbside residual waste collection service, reaching 97% of households and over 99% of the population. The access to kerbside residual waste collection varied across NSW with 100% of households in the SMA receiving kerbside residual waste collection services, 99% in the ERA, and 89% in the NRA.

Figure 14: NSW councils providing kerbside residual waste collection services

An average of 630 kg of residual waste was collected per household receiving a domestic waste service in 200506 (Figure 15 below). On a weekly basis this equates to an average of 12.1 kg per household and 4.5 kg per capita.

Alternative Waste Treatment (AWT)


Alternative Waste Treatment (AWT) can involve a range of different treatment technologies that are used to treat or process residual waste to recover additional resources and/or stabilise the waste material prior to landfilling. Typically residue material from the AWT process, or processed material that cannot be beneficially reused, is disposed of to landfill. In 200506, 65,400 tonnes of material was recovered from the residual waste stream using AWT technologies. Councils were asked about their current position on AWT in the Data Return of 200506. Their responses are indicated in Figure 20.

Kerbside clean up service


Ninety-five NSW councils provided a kerbside clean up collection service, reaching 83% of households and over 90% of the population (Figure 21). The access to a kerbside clean up service varied across NSW with these services being provided to 94% of households in the SMA, 91% in the ERA, and 58% in the NRA.

Figure 21: NSW councils with a kerbside clean up service

133,458 tonnes of bulky goods were collected in NSW, of which 109,703 tonnes were sent to landfill and 23, 754 tonnes were recycled. The overall Resource Recovery Rate (RRR) for kerbside clean up in NSW was in the order of 14%: 89,093 tonnes collected in the SMA (13% RRR) 25,213 tonnes collected in the ERA (16% RRR) 19,152 tonnes collected in the NRA (42% RRR).

Drop-off facilities provided by councils


One hundred and one NSW councils provided a recycling drop-off facility (dry recycling and/or garden organics), which was accessible by 56% of households and 55% of the population (Figure 22). The access to recycling drop off facilities varied across NSW with access to these facilities at 26% in the SMA, 95% in the ERA, and 87% in the NRA. The residents of 14 councils had a drop-off facility as their only recycling option.

Figure 22: NSW councils providing a recycling drop off facility

190,191 tonnes of recyclable material were collected at drop off facilities: 32,997 tonnes of dry recyclables 157,194 tonnes of garden organics.

Recovery rates
The recovery rate is the percentage of the total amount of materials disposed of by households that is recovered for recycling or processing. The target for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in the Strategy is to increase recovery rates from 26% to 66% by 2014. MSW is defined in the Strategy as: The solid waste component of the waste stream arising from household waste placed at the kerbside for council collection and waste collected by council from municipal parks and gardens, street sweepings, council engineering works and public council bins. It excludes hazardous, clinical and related wastes. This report is based on waste and recycling generated by households only, which is a component of MSW and is not strictly the total of MSW. However, it is a good place to start for the purpose of looking at the States scorecard. The recovery rate for NSW in 200506 was 37.5% when all collected household waste and recycling is included in the calculation, i.e. residual waste, recycling, garden organics, clean-up and drop-off. The recovery rates for the regions are: SMA 39.2% ERA 39.4% NRA 32.7%. The graphs also indicate the baseline recovery rate of 26% in 2000 and the target recovery rate of 66% by 2014.

Glossary
AWT technology Alternative Waste Treatment technology DECCW Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water NSW Domestic waste generation The sum of the total of all materials collected or recovered through the domestic waste collection and resource recovery services (i.e. waste + recycling + garden organics + clean up). Domestic Waste Management Charge The rate that councils charge each year for the provision domestic waste management services for each parcel of rateable land for which the service is available (s496 the Local Government Act 1993). Drop off recycling Places where materials or goods can be lawfully deposited for resource recovery or special management. Dry recyclables The standard range of dry recyclables includes: recyclable paper and cardboard including newspapers, magazines, phone books, cardboard packaging and liquid paperboard; glass bottles and jars; steel cans and aerosols; aluminium rigid and semi-rigid packaging; all plastic containers. Gross yield The total amount of material collected from an individual household as a result of the provision of a specific waste and/or resource recovery service. Household A household comprises the people that usually reside together within a single housing unit (house, unit, farm etc). Kerbside clean up collection A kerbside waste collection for waste items that are too large for collection via the normal household waste service. Kerbside recycling A formalised kerbside collection system for recyclables from households, where the householder segregates the wastes according to material type and places them in containers on the kerbside for separate collection. LGA Local Government Area MGB Mobile Garbage Bin. Also in the general context refers to mobile bins used for the collection of recycling and garden organics.

NSW Local Government Waste and Resource Recovery Data Report 20052006

Organics Compostable organics is a generic term for all organic materials that are appropriate for collection and use as feedstocks for composting or in related biological treatment systems (e.g anaerobic digestion). Compostable organics is defined by its material components: residual food organics, garden organics, wood and timber, biosolids and agricultural organics. Garden organics include: Putrescible garden organic material (grass clippings) Non-woody garden organic material Woody garden organic material Trees and limbs Stumps and rootballs (not usually accepted in kerbside collection systems). Garden organics is one of the primary components of the compostable organics stream. Predominant bin type Where a council offers residents a range of bin sizes for a particular waste stream, the size used by the greatest number of households in a given LGA is considered the predominant bin type. Predominant service type Where a council offers residents a range of waste service types, the waste service provided to the greatest number of households is considered to be the predominant service type. Recovery Rate The Recovery Rate is the proportion of domestic dry recyclables and organics recovered through kerbside and drop off resource recovery services compared to total domestic waste generation. Residual waste Residual waste or garbage is materials that are not separated for recycling or recovery, but are generally disposed of at solid and inert waste landfills. Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery (WARR) Act 2001 An Act to promote waste avoidance and resource recovery. Its purpose is to develop a state-wide framework to achieve integrated waste and resource management planning, programs and service delivery, to provide for the continual reduction in waste generation, to minimise the consumption of natural resources and the final disposal of waste and to encourage the most efficient use of resources. Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy (WARR Strategy) 2003 The development of the WARR Strategy is a requirement of the WARR Act 2001. The initial Strategy was released in 2003 and an updated Strategy was released in 2007. The WARR Strategy provides guidance and priorities for action to ensure that efficient resource use and impacts on the environment are considered throughout the life cycle of goods and materials, including the extraction of raw materials, manufacturing, distribution, consumption and recovery for reprocessing or safe disposal.
