Download the full Carbon Index report (PDF)

The Local Authority Recycling Carbon Index measures the environmental performance of councils' recycling services. When products are recycled it avoids the need to extract and process new raw material, reducing carbon emissions. The size of the reduction depends on the material recycled. The Carbon Index uses the amount of each material that a council collects to calculate how much carbon is saved.
