What a Waste – A Global Review of Solid Waste Management

This report estimates that today these amounts have increased to about 3 billion residents generating 1.2 kg per person per day (1.3 billion tonnes per year). By 2025 this will likely increase to 4.3 billion urban residents generating about 1.42 kg/capita/day of municipal solid waste (2.2 billion tonnes per year). This report provides consolidated data on MSW generation, collection, composition, and disposal by country and by region.
