The figure combines two chart types. The stacked area chart represents the amounts and share of waste deposited in landfills, broken down into the most relevant waste categories (household and similar waste, sorting residues, combustion waste and other waste). The line chart, with scale on the secondary vertical axis, represents landfill rate. Data extracted from Eurostat’s [env_wastrt]: Treatment of waste by waste category, hazardousness and waste management operations. The data shown in this figure do not include major mineral wastes.
