ENV2a: Net cost per Waste disposal per premise
Summary definition

This indicator measures the total cost of waste disposal per premise.For the purposes of this indicator, refuse disposal includes any treatment of waste collected by the council which is recycled e.g. paper, cardboard, glass, textiles, ferrous and non-ferrous metal, books, wood etc.

Why do we measure this?

One of the main environmental services provided by councils is waste disposal. 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
