Lithium battery fires

Lithium batteries have caused fires in the rubbish lorries. Please do not put batteries in your waste or recycling bin. All batteries (including lithium batteries from e-bikes and e-scooters and other re-chargeable devices) can be taken to the Reuse and Recycling Centre at Northumberland Wharf.

Carbon Footprint tool

This Carbon Footprint tool will help all organisations calculate their carbon emissions. The tool will calculate the carbon emissions from an organisation’s:

  • buildings,
  • transport,
  • refrigerant use,
  • water use and
  • waste produced.

The tool will then generate a greenhouse gas report that can be used to report the organisation’s emissions and to monitor emissions over future years to track progress in reducing them.

The tool also provides some tips and advice on ways an organisation can reduce its emissions.


Instructions on how to complete the tool are set out in the tool. If you have any questions, please contact us
