Term Explanation
MF Materials Facility
Average target % composition The average percentage of material targeted by the MF from the samples taken.
Average non-target % composition The average percentage of material that is not targeted by the MF, from the samples taken, but has the capacity to be recycled.
Average non-recyclable % composition The average percentage of material, from the samples taken, that cannot be recycled.
Standard deviation of target material A measure of dataset dispersion from the mean. Ideally the standard deviation number should be small to indicate low variance from the mean.
Standard error of the mean An indication of how close the calculated arithmetic mean of the samples taken is to the true mean of the waste stream under consideration.
95% confidence of target material The standard error of the mean can in be used to calculate the confidence interval. A 95% confidence interval is 1.96 standard errors either side of the calculated arithmetic mean.
