Indicator 1 & 2 MUNICIPAL WASTE GENERATION – WITH ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON MUNICIPAL WASTE COMPOSITION
COLLECTED AND TREATED MUNICIPAL WASTE – WITH ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON NUMBER, TYPE AND LOCATION OF LANDFILLS

 

Definition of the indicator

The amount of collected municipal waste and collection rate are used to calculate the amount of generated municipal waste expressed in kg per capita per year. The “Municipal waste” refers to waste collected by or on behalf of municipalities; the main part originates from households, but similar wastes from commerce and trade, office buildings, institutions and small businesses is also included. The measure of the proportion of waste collected which is recycled, composted, incinerated, or landfilled in controlled sites gives an indication of the environmental impact of waste management in a country/region.

Population with access to improved sanitation systems % 98.3 (2012)
WW volume collected   million m3/ year 491.5 (2012)
WW Volume treated  million m3/ year 487 (2012)

Indicator 3 : Access to Sanitation

 

The indicator refers to the percentage of the population with access to facilities which hygienically separate human excreta from human, animal and insect contact. The improved sanitation systems are those installed in homes or in the immediate vicinity, for the evacuation of human feces (public sanitation network, septic tank, etc.). The definition of “improved sanitation system” provided by the Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation by the World Health Organization and UNICEF is: Connection to a public sewer, connection to a septic system, pour-flush latrine, access to a pit latrine, ventilated improved pit latrine.

Indicator 4 : Municipal Wastewater Management

 

The indicator refers to the volume of municipal wastewater collected by public sewage networks, septic systems and cesspits, and the volume of wastewater treated in wastewater treatment plants. Here reference is made to primary (mechanical) treatment that removes part of the suspended solids, and secondary (biological) treatment that uses aerobic or anaerobic micro-organisms to decompose most of the organic matter and retain some of the nutrients (around 20 - 30 %). Tertiary (advanced) treatment removes the organic matter even more efficiently.
