ENV1a: Net cost of Waste collection per premise
Summary definition

This indicator measures the total cost of waste collection per premise. For the purpose of this indicator, it is assumed that ‘collection’ ends when the specialised refuse collection vehicles discharge waste at a transfer station, a treatment plant, a material recycling facility or at landfill.

Why do we measure this?

One of the main environmental services provided by councils is waste collection. The cost of this per premise is a simple way of assessing this service. Using a Net Cost measure recognises that waste management has the potential to generate significant income for councils, and that councils’ performance in this area is equally as important in managing its costs
