How much waste does the UK produce in a year?

   
Answer
 

An estimated 435 million tonnes of waste is produced in the UK every year. This is enough to fill Lake Windermere (in the Lake District, Cumbria) every nine months. In the UK each person throws away ten times their own weight in rubbish each year.
