Waste - Drivers and pressures (Luxembourg)
As indicated in the ‘Why care?’ section, the main driver and pressure for waste streams and composition is the economic development of the country that gradually shifted from a rural economy to an industrial one (with the steel industry) and, finally, to a service and financial centre. The latter development was accompanied by a remarkable population growth and by an ever increasing number of cross-border commuters – see country profile.
