This figure identifies the net greenhouse gas (GHG) emission from the management of municipal solid waste (MSW) from 1990 to 2020. Emissions from the waste management are split into different treatment options (recycling, incineration, landfilling and transportation) and into direct and avoided emissions.

European data


Additional information

GHG emissions before 1995 are calculated based on backcasted waste data. GHG emissions after 2008 are projected.
