Waste : Lombardy ranks in the first places for waste disposal

According to the Urban Waste Report of 2017 of the Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale (ISPRA), which includes data from the year 2016 on waste management in Italy, the Eusalp regions differ in terms of the generation of the highest percentage of urban waste such as paper, glass and damp.

According  to the ISPRA, in the last ten years separate waste collection in Italy  has  increased from 25.8% in 2006 to 52.5% in 2016, with an increase of 5 percent compared to 2015. This data can be considered positive, but it is still far from the target of 65% set for the year of 2012, which was achieved only by four regions: Veneto (72.9%),Trentino Alto Adige (70.5%), Lombardy (68.1%) and Friuli Venezia Giulia (67.1%). The amount of waste collection  in Lombardy, in particular, rose from 53.3 percent of urban waste  differentiated in 2013 to 68.1 in 2016, with an increase of 28 percent.
