Additional information

Notes: The further from the centre in the radar chart, the worse the waste management. Countries are ranked from the highest landfilling rate in 2010 to the lowest. The landfilling rate is calculated as a % of MSW landfilled per MSW generated. According to Eurostat the comparability of the data over time is high. However, some breaks in the time series are documented, which can influence the comparability between countries and within a country. Generally, the quality of the data seems to better in the end of the period between 2001 and 2010 than in the beginning.
