Publication: Study on Waste Statistics – A comprehensive review of gaps and weaknesses and key priority areas for improvement in the EU waste statistics

Member States are required to report on waste management activities under a number of EU Directives and Regulations. Most (though not all) of the data is reported in order to monitor compliance with a range of binding targets on various aspects of waste management, including collection, reuse, recycling, recovery and landfilling of different waste streams. In order for the European Commission to be able to properly evaluate compliance, then reliable and relevant data is needed. Such data can also support decision making for future targets and to promote sustainable development at the national and international levels.
The aim of this study was to identify and analyse the main sources of uncertainties, inconsistencies and gaps in the reporting of waste statistics across the EU282 and to provide recommendations for improvement.
