Welcome to the latest analysis produced by our inhouse rural analyst.
This week we've considered Recycling and Waste and Benefits Processing.You can find Recycling and Waste analysis in the the following areas for the year 2021/2022:

  • Residual Waste per Household
  • Household Waste sent for Reuse, Recycling or Composting
  • Collected household Waste per person
  • Municipal Waste Sent to Landfill
With the analyses which can be accessed at this link, you can see your authority's performance, compared to other rural councils. The graphs are colour coded, to show you the top quartile performance in green, down to bottom quartile in red and can give you an idea of how well your area is performing. We've also done some analysis on Benefits processing times for Q3 data for 2022/2023 which has just been released.
This enables you to check your authorities performance compared to other rural councils at processing new housing benefit claims or change of circumstances to existing claims. You can view the analysis at this link.We would love your feedback on the analysis that we produce to ensure that it is meeting your needs.
Please feel free to contact with your views or if there are alternative measures you'd like to see compared.
