These data are for England only - waste management is a devolved matter and the Devolved Administrations should be contacted for figures in those nations.

The table below gives a list of all of the incinerators in England that are permitted to dispose of anatomical and cytotoxic waste, their maximum permitted annual throughputs and location.

The actual capacity of each incinerator will vary from year to year according to the mixture of waste types it receives for disposal and the number of shutdowns that are needed for maintenance and repairs.
