DATA INSIGHTS

Waste Generation per capita per day

SOLID WASTE GENERATED PER CAPITA IN EACH COUNTRY

The Waste Generation per Capita indicator shows the amount of waste generated by a household, generally composed of general garbage, sludge (wastewater treatment solids), and non-hazardous wastes. This indicator is expressed in kg/capita/day and provides an insight into the daily waste generation produced per person in each country. 


As demand for resources increases due to population growth, economic growth, or just consumption growth, waste generation, particularly in urban areas, is increasing at a rapid pace (from 0.64 kg/per capita/day in 2002 to 1.42 kg/capita/day by 2025), which results in various negative environmental impacts (i.e. air pollution and soil contamination). Globally, waste generation rates are rising at a faster pace than the urbanization rate. In order to promote sustainable consumption and production patterns, global efforts, so as to meet the SDG target are necessary to revert the current trend - consuming more resources and producing more waste. (SDG, 12.5, 2018)

Hazardous Waste

AMOUNT OF TOXIC, INFECTION, RADIOACTIVE WASTE GENERATED IN NATURE

Hazardous waste consists of materials that are toxic, infectious or flammable properties which pose a potential hazard to humans and the environment. For instance, waste generated from biomedical waste from hospitals and other specific fields, are hazardous. In March 1989, the Basel Convention was adopted, aiming for sound management of hazardous waste, especially preventing the disposal of hazardous waste by industrial countries in developing countries where stringent policies were lacking and environmental disasters have repeatedly happened.     


The plot here informs the amount of hazardous generated in tonnes in the year 2014. Countries such as Khazakstan, Serbia or Germany produce between 10-40 million tonnes of toxic waste each year. If properly managed, this can become a source of valuable recycled material. E-waste, one of the biggest sources of waste in the 21st century, contains some of the most precious rare metals on the planet, the same that are extracted with blood and tears year after year.
