Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 5 January 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how much carpet material has been sent to landfill in each of the last five years, broken down by local authority.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 26 January 2017

This information is not available.

Local authority waste data held by SEPA does not include specific information about how much carpet material has been sent to landfill over the last five years. It is likely that carpet material is included within the categories of ‘textile wastes’ and ‘household and similar wastes’. This information, including breakdown by local authority and waste management is available via the Discover Data tools on the SEPA website at:
