Note: A slight amendment has been made to Figure 9 in this report.  Figure 9 had been displaying year-to-date data as opposed to data relating only to the July to September 2013 quarter.  Figure 9 in the report was amended at 11:00 on 23/01/14 to present only data for the July to September 2013 quarter, so any downloads of the report taken between 9.30 and 11.00 on 23/01/14 may have contained the chart (Figure 9) with the year-to-date data.  This change will not have affected any tables, commentary or any of the other charts contained within the report.

Note: Please note that, due to a technical error, an incorrect version of this report was previously uploaded to the website which did not have all sections of commentary fully updated (although all associated tables and charts were correct). The incorrectly reported figures were on pages 12, 16, 17 and 18 of the report and related to LAC municipal waste arisings, LAC municipal waste collected for disposal, household waste sent for recycling and composting and household waste landfilled. The correct version has now been uploaded and we apologise for any inconvenience which this error may have caused to users.
