GLOBAL RECYCLING: The Netherlands are heading towards a Circular Economy

Thirty years ago, the Netherlands suffered from a lack of landfill capacity and insufficient thermal treatment capacity. This urged a change in waste management policy: The amount of landfilled waste decreased from 35 percent in 1985 to 2.3 percent in 2010. The rate of recovery including waste-to-energy rose from 50 percent to 88 percent. Currently 79 percent of the Dutch waste is recycled; the residual waste is mainly used for energy production, according to Rijkswaterstaat at the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment.
