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.
