Plastic recycling in Europe

March 18th is the World Recycling Day. This day is becoming more and more important in our societies, with interventions in the media, schools, or public spaces because the future of our planet is at risk. Therefore, CartoVista has decided to focus on the treatment of plastic waste in Europe with a a two thematic map.

Restrictions in European countries

This colourful theme focuses on the different restrictions for landfilling in Europe. We see that the countries of Southern and Eastern Europe have not yet made a complete effort to legislate on this subject.

The type of treatment

This section shows how European countries deal with their plastic waste (landfill, recycling or energy recovery).
