Table description


This table contains a waste balance with information on the origin and destination of different types of solid waste. The amount of waste produced by households and different industries and imports is presented. Regarding the destination of waste a distinction is made between different ways of treatment (recycling, incineration and disposal on land) and exports. The waste accounts are suitable for analysis, for example drivers behind changes in waste indicators over time.

This table is part of the environmental accounts. Data in the environmental accounts are compiled according the concepts and definitions of the national accounts, which makes it possible to quantify the environmental effects of the economic activities for the Netherlands in a consistent manner. As a result, the figures may differ from data on the environment presented elsewhere on the website.
