Waste Services Financial Benchmarking Hub

The Waste Services Financial Benchmarking Hub has been developed in conjunction with Data Cymru and provides a detailed repository of financial data relating to waste services from Wales’ 22 local authorities. The data covers:

  1. Food Waste Services
  2. Residual Waste Services
  3. Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC)
  4. Trade Waste Services
  5. Dry Recycling Services

The Hub was created following a recommendation made after a review conducted by Ricardo AEA into the benchmarking Wales work. Its objective is to improve the data dissemination of the benchmarking work. By collating the data also in one place the Hub allows for waste officers within local authorities the opportunity to interrogate and access the data as and when they wish.
