Generation of waste excluding major mineral wastes by hazardousness [sdg_12_50]

Documentation on provider website

The indicator measures all waste generated in a country. Due to the strong fluctuations in waste generation in the mining and construction sectors and their limited data quality and comparability, major mineral wastes, dredging spoils and soils are excluded. This exclusion enhances comparability across countries as mineral waste accounts for high quantities in some countries with important economic activities such as mining and construction.
