Now you have come to the page, Choose variable. This page give you the oportunity to select which variables and values you want to display in your result of the table. A variable is a property of a statistical unit. The page is divided into several boxes, one for each variable, where you can select values by click to highlight one or more values. It always starts with the statistics variable which is the main value counted in the table.

Municipal waste is mainly produced by households, though similar wastes from sources such as commerce, offices and public institutions are included. The amount of municipal waste generated consists of waste collected by or on behalf of municipal authorities and disposed of through the waste management system. The amount of municipal waste treatment is reported for the treatment operations incineration (with and without energy recovery), recycling, composting and landfilling. Wastes from agriculture and from industries are not included.

EU refers to EU28, which is the European Union with a fixed area composition of 28 countries.

Eurostat estimate, excluding Total incineration (including energy recovery) 1999, Total waste generated 1997 and Material recycling 1997

treatment

Deposit onto or into land

Deposit into or onto land (Landfill) includes specially engineered landfills and temporary storage of over one year on permanent sites.

Total incineration (including energy recovery)

Incineration means thermal treatment of waste in an incineration plants. Energy recovery is defined as the incineration that fulfils the energy efficiency criteria laid down in the EU Waste Framework Directive.

Material recycling

Material recycling means any recovery operation by which waste materials are reprocessed.

Composting and digestion

Composting is the biological process that submits biodegradable waste to anaerobic or aerobic decomposition.
