Abstract

The results of a study on the regional variation of household refuse arising rates in the UK are described. The analysis focuses on the factors affecting refuse arisings rates. Household size, the presence of infant children and housing type were all found to be positively correlated with the total quantity of refuse arisings in a given household. Households in detached houses generated greater quantities of paper and cardboard than households in other types of housing. Putrescible refuse arisings were positively correlated with household size and the presence of infant children, while miscellaneous combustibles were positively correlated with the presence of infant children, and the use of wheeled bins.
