Circular Economy Resource Recovery Report (CERRR) 2020–21
The CERRR replaces the previous Recycling Activity Survey reports and summarises the quantities of resources diverted from waste in SA through recycling, re-use or energy recovery over the 2020-21 financial year. The data exclude net losses of these materials arising from resource recovery and/or re-processing activities. Recovered material quantities and estimated value of the recovered resources to the SA economy are compared to the previous reported financial year (2019-20).
This data provides a comprehensive and reliable account of SA’s resource recovery. Combined with landfill disposal data collected by the South Australian Environment Protection Authority, it enables assessment of SA’s resource recovery performance, including diversion rate. This includes comparing SA’s performance with the State’s Waste Strategy targets as well as benchmarking this performance against other jurisdictions in Australia.
