Recycling Activity in South Australia 2019-20
This resource recovery data describes the quantity of waste resources collected in SA over the 2019-20 financial year for the purpose of recycling, excluding net losses of these materials arising from resource recovery and/or re-processing activities. Comparisons are made to the last reported financial year (2018-19). Estimates of reporting accuracy have been used to ensure that resource recovery data is reported to an appropriate level of certainty.
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.
