WasteDataFlow Waste Management

Posted on 20 February 2012 by Anonymous


WasteDataFlow is the web based system for municipal waste data reporting by UK local authorities to government. The system went live on 30 April 2004.The aim is to gradually replace the various and often repetitive waste questionnaires issued to local authorities by government, departments, agencies, institutions and organisations with one essential data set. WasteDataFlow has replaced the current Defra Municipal Waste Management Survey in England and similar surveys in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

WasteDataFlow is designed for local authorities:

  •  to allow faster and more accurate data collection of municipal waste statistics, more regularly and efficiently;
  •  to enhance their local data management for reporting and strategic planning purposes;
  •  to offer them streamlined access to performance benchmarking with other authorities.
