Italy: number of municipal waste landfills 2013-2017

Total number of municipal waste landfills in Italy from 2013 to 2017

Italy: number of municipal waste landfills 2013-2017 In 2017, there were 123 municipal waste landfills in Italy, a remarkable decrease compared to 2013, when there were 180 landfills in the country. A landfill is a place intended for the disposal of waste. More specifically, waste that cannot be recycled or recovered is buried in landfills. The volume of municipal waste sent to landfills considerably decreased over time. In 2017, roughly seven million tons of municipal waste were buried in landfills, whereas in 2012 this amounted to approximately 12 million tons.  
Municipal waste management

On the other hand, the recycling rate of municipal waste significantly increased from 29.7 percent in 2009 to 47.7 percent in 2017. As a matter of fact, in 2017 almost one third of municipal solid waste was recovered. However, landfills still represented a relevant means in waste management, as they accounted for 23 percent of all waste treatments.  

Waste buried in landfills by area

In 2017, Sicily was the Italian region with the highest amount of waste buried in landfills. Apulia and Tuscany followed far behind. A glance at the geographical distribution shows that in the South of Italy the quantity of waste sent to landfills was much higher than in other areas of the country.
