§ 48. Sir J. Gilmour
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, what percentage of domestic and industrial waste in Scotland is in any way treated, reclaimed, or 139W made into compost; and what percentage is buried without treatment.
§ Mr. Younger:
The domestic refuse from about one third of Scotland's population is incinerated, from about 6 per cent. pulverised, and from about 6 per cent. made into compost. Any residue from treated domestic refuse, and all untreated refuse, is disposed of by controlled tipping. Corresponding information is not available about industrial waste.
