Indicator Assessment Municipal waste generation (CSI 016/WST 001) - Assessment published Nov 2010
An important objective of EU policy is to decouple waste generation from economic growth. The evidence shows that for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) generation, which is around 10 % of the total waste generated in the EU, levels have stabilised after 2000 at a high level of 520 kg/capita, despite the economic growth. However, the objective to reduce generation of waste has not been achieved yet for Municipal Solid Waste.

Indicator Assessment Municipal waste generation (CSI 016/WST 001) - Assessment published Dec 2011
One of the most important objectives of the EU policy is to decouple waste generation from economic growth. Data shows that Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) generation in the EU-27 has been stabilising after around 520 kg/capita since 2000, despite the continuous economic growth until 2008. The effect of the recent economic crisis can be a reason of the further reductions in 2008-2009.
