Andusia Confirm Waste Volumes Stable

With so-called ‘Freedom Day’ previously planned for 21st June having been extended, Andusia take the opportunity to look once more at the effects of coronavirus on UK waste volumes.

In March, the Environment Agency reported that RDF exports fell by 37% in 2020 versus the previous year. A fall undoubtedly influenced by the coronavirus pandemic and the UK’s lockdown. Supporting this, according to data reported by both Veolia and Suez UK, the amount of waste generated in commercial and industrial workplaces drastically reduced by 50%. In contrast, with families at home, municipal waste increased by 20%.

At the time, Andusia anticipated that the impact of Covid-19 on waste volumes ‘would quickly dissipate’, and we, as a company, have already seen this come to fruition. Andusia can confidently report that, although waste volumes are not back to pre-covid levels, they have reached a stable level for which we do not see going on the decline again.

The Resilience of the Waste Industry

After a tumultuous 12 months the end is almost in sight. Under the UK Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, from 21st June, England will return to something close to normal. Andusia take a look back at the past years events on waste management for what has proven to be a resilient industry and the future of RDF export.

As reported in data published by the Environment Agency, RDF exports fell by 37% in 2020 compared to the previous year. Several influences last year undoubtedly impacted these export levels, such as Dutch tax, but the significant factor was most certainly the coronavirus pandemic.

Disposal of Infectious Covid-19 Waste

It is no surprise that with a global pandemic, comes an increase in infectious clinical waste, whether it be from Covid-19 testing facilities or increased hospital admissions. The management and treatment of such waste has become a challenge for the healthcare industry.

A typical Covid-19 patient can produce roughly double the amount of waste compared to a non-covid patient. Most of this waste will be due to additional PPE, cleaning products and wipes – but this all needs to be disposed of in a safe and secure manner.
