Dear EEA,

I need your help! Can you tell me (or point me in the right direction) how many kilograms of glass, paper, plastic and metals are generated on average in the EU-27 per year per person (household waste generated, separated by fractions)?

I found a document named ”Romania_packaging_final_ report” that has some valuable data but it refers to 2002 and I need a more recent data (2010, maybe 2011).

Dear greenalex,
Unfortunately we do not have the requested data available at EEA. But you might find what you are looking for at the Eurostat data center on waste. The website can be found at:[…]/database
Here you can find specific data for different years.

Hope that helps.

Thank you very much for your answer. Unfortunately, I also sent an email to eea.enquiries(at) with the same request (before I received your answer here) and I hope it will be disregarded now.

My research also lead me to Eurostat and indeed I think I found what I was looking for but some data seemed a bit weird and wanted to compare it with the one from EEA. It does help, nevertheless.

Best regards,

Actually, I was using the wrong settings. Eurostat data is perfect. Thank you once again!
