Frequently Asked Questions

Can we use our local data for waste emissions?

No. Waste emissions for Snapshot are calculated at the point of waste generation rather than waste treatment (see FAQ How are waste emissions allocated to my region?).

Many councils have access to detailed and local waste data sourced from collections and processing contractors. This data is very valuable in monitoring and reporting the impacts of emissions reduction measures at the specific site. While emissions reductions achieved at an individual landfill will contribute to lower waste emissions across the state as a whole, these reductions will not be localised to the municipality where the landfill is located.
