The population of Luxembourg is likely to continue to rise.  Estimates are that it could reach 560 000 to 605 000 inhabitants by 2024. The number of cross-border commuters is also expected to grow again after the stabilisation observed during the financial and economic crisis that hit the country at the end of the first decade of this century. Consequently, waste generation might increase and should be controlled as much as possible, notably through an overall waste management plan – see the ‘National Responses’ chapter – designing the axes of the future waste policy in Luxembourg.
