Table description


Amount of municipal waste collected by or on behalf of municipalities in the Netherlands. Amount of waste by type of waste, province, municipal size class and degree of urbanisation. Statistical information on waste treatment.

Municipalities that collectively manage waste collection centres (milieustraat), assign the waste flows to participating municipalities based on the proportion of inhabitants of the total. The Zeeuwse Reinigingsdienst (ZRD) until 2021 assigned the waste flows based on the proportion of weighed kilograms per waste collection centre in relation to the total for the municipalities in the province of Zeeland, but has now switched to assigning them based on the proportion of inhabitants as well. This cause a break with regards to earlier years of the times series, and 2021 en 2020 data cannot be easily compared for the province of Zeeland.
