Main tables

Main tables on waste statistics offer a  selection of pre-defined tables, extracted from the Eurostat waste statistics database. They present the most important data in a user-friendly way as Tables, Graphs or Maps (TGM).

The TGM interface is accessed by clicking on the following icon in the data tree below Tables, Graphs and Maps interface .

Explanatory texts (metadata) can also be accessed by clicking on this icon in the data tree Explanatory text.
All data are presented in simple two- or three-dimensional tables.

Some  additional explanations on the datasets:

  • Waste treatment data for all years (2004-2010) at national level are in the table "Treatment of waste (env_wastrt)". The corresponding "historical" data at NUTS1 level are in the table "Treatment of waste by NUTS 1 regions (env_wastrtr)" only for 2004-2008 as the NUTS1 level data are no longer collected from 2010 onwards.
  • The table "Number and capacity of recovery and disposal facilities by NUTS 2 regions (env_wasfac)" is available.
