Waste


Waste production has shown a significant increase in the last years (observing period 1997-2006). This is a sign that production and consumption are still mainly driven by the concept of use and throw away. In particular, analysis of the correlation between waste generation, GDP and household consumption shows waste generation growing more rapidly than economic indicators. High growth of waste generation suggests the need for prevention and minimization policies. In particular, the environmental impacts of waste not only come from its management but mainly from the non-sustainable use of resources.
