Highlight What does waste look like? Photo, cartoon and video competition
The European Environment Agency (EEA) is launching a new competition for artistic depictions of waste in Europe. Each European generates approximately half a tonne of household waste on average. A lot of this so-called waste is actually a useful resource, but only two fifths is recycled, according to a recent analysis.

Press Release Octet Stream Highest recycling rates in Austria and Germany – but UK and Ireland show fastest increase
Austria, Germany and Belgium recycled the largest proportion of municipal waste in Europe in 2010. Although some countries have rapidly increased recycling rates, Europe is still wasting vast quantities of valuable resources by sending them to landfill, and many countries risk falling short of legally binding recycling targets.

Indicator Assessment Municipal waste generation (CSI 016/WST 001) - Assessment DRAFT created Jan 2013
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 since 2000 albeit a high level of around 520 kg/capita. The effect of the economic downturn at the end of 2008 can be a reason of the further reductions in the amount of municipal waste generation from 2008 to 2011.
