The COLLECTORS web platform and waste library are now online

Consult data on 242 waste collection systems from 24 countries!

Brussels, Belgium – For the past few months, the COLLECTORS consortium has collected datasets on 242 municipal waste collection systems, focusing on three waste streams: paper and packaging waste (PPW), waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and construction and demolition waste (CDW). Data collection was achieved by identifying publicly available data and through direct contact with competent authorities.

We are happy to let you know that the collected data are now available on an online web platform that enables users to identify relevant territories and to consult their performance for the three above-mentioned fractions and along specific criteria. On it, users will also be able to find information on the organisation of selective collection, sorting performance and associated costs.

The web platform will be further developed and completed with more detailed information on specific case studies. You can also help us consolidate it by providing some feedback on the data. You can do so by using the links at the bottom of each factsheet.

But the good news does not end here. The COLLECTORS Consortium used over 250 sources during the course of the research conducted for the web platform. In order to facilitate other stakeholders’ access to the data sources, they have all been uploaded or hyperlinked in a new online waste library.

If you are interested in sharing your own data on the web platform, please get in touch with us!
