Definitions
 

Household waste: total amount of household waste that is collected by or on behalf of the municipalities. These figures also include equivalent industrial waste collected by or on behalf of the municipalities.

 

Remarks on quality
 

The data published by OVAM are based on the waste disposal survey in the municipalities. All Flemish municipalities complete this survey annually (100% response). The data are extensively checked by OVAM.

They are aligned with the figures officially reported by the Flemish Region/Belgium to the European institutions and thus aligned with the calculation rules of the European Union.

The quality of the data is good and the international comparability is high.
