§ Mr. Kynoch
Data on waste management in Scotland are published in the Scottish Office Statistical Bulletin, "Waste Collection, Disposal and Regulation Statistical".266W
The most recent issue of this document, containing data for 1993, was published in December 1995. A copy is in the House Library.
Table B18 of the bulletin shows the number of waste management facilities by district and islands councils. Landfill operations form the bulk of these numbers but are not specifically identified. Of the 1,054 licences and resolutions in table B 18, a total of 635 were associated with landfills–458 licences and 177 resolutions.
Table B9 of the bulletin shows the quantity of special waste arisings and deposits in Scotland for 1993. Corresponding information for 1992 is detailed in table B9 of the 1992 bulletin, a copy of which is in the House Library. There is no district level information available before 1992. Table A2.2 of the 1993 bulletin provides a time series of data over the five-year period 1989 to 1993 for the total quantities of special waste arising, imported, exported and retained in Scotland. Table B22 of the 1993 bulletin and table B21 of the 1992 bulletin also contain relevant information on special waste.
