(Compilation of waste statistics on regional, national and European level)

Waste statistics provide information on type, amount and origin of waste within a certain area (regional, national or European level) and a certain time interval. Statistics may be based on data from waste generators or on data from waste disposal facilities. Unlike waste balances, waste statistics do not necessarily describe the life cycle of waste from origin to disposal. The compilation of waste statistics in addition to official statistics is necessary when information is needed in more detail, at shorter intervals, at different levels of aggregation etc.

We compile waste statistics on the basis of full surveys or by means of sample surveys. The sampling plan and the survey design are developed and conducted on the basis of statistical sound methods and followed by extensive plausibility checks. The combination of our statistical experience and our waste management know-how guarantees waste statistics at highest standards.
