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 in line with the figures officially reported by Flanders/Belgium to the European institutions and thus in line with the calculation rules of the EU.  

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