Fires at waste centres / refuse vehicles



Request detail: 

Under Freedom of Information, I would be grateful if you could assist with the following enquiry. We are interested in the number of fires in refuse vehicles and at waste and recycling centres. I appreciate you may not have a specific code for this, and if not, it would be great if you could use a free text search for any terms you might think would capture this (e.g. waste centre, recycling centre, rubbish truck, refuse vehicle). It would be great to have the data split by waste facilities and refuse vehicles, and broken down by the years 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Response detail: 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. Please refer to the attached spreadsheet for the information requested.
