  • Using multiple linear regression on 20 refuse rounds provides results which show:
    • That, on average, village properties in West Devon are 1.64 times more costly to collect than town properties (urban)
    • That, on average, properties in hamlets and isolated rural dwellings are 2.78 times more costly to collect than town properties (urban)
    • Waste management cost: West Devon 2011/12 is £1.66m

  • Using multiple linear regression on 20 refuse rounds provides results which show:
    • If all the properties in West Devon were urban and town/fringe and there were no village or hamlet/isolated properties to collect then the £1.66m cost would be £1.07m
    • This means that the rural penalty (ie the additional cost of collecting from villages and hamlets) equates to £590k
