Abstract

The study analysed the waste statistics of European Union (EU) countries with particular emphasis on waste from extractive industries. Assessment of the data available at EU level (Eurostat) and presented by individual countries showed that even with a number of EU regulations and guidance, there are no complete, consistent and integrated reports that monitor the implementation of measures and support for waste management. Based on the example of Poland, a detailed analysis of the environmental reports from each mining company (to the regional database) and a grouping of the data according to EU waste codes were conducted for the 2017 data. The results were then compared with the data provided by the Central Statistical Office. It has been shown that there is a need for the reporting to be improved in order to avoid inconsistencies and to be able to undertake a detailed assessment of the approach and activities carried out with regard to their impact on the environment and society. Based on the example of Poland, the collection of data based on the waste code at the level of each mining company can be recommended, and this should be made available to the public by individual group of wastes on one platform (e.g. Eurostat) which would be helpful for proper waste management and the creation of industrial symbiosis and a quicker transformation towards a circular economy.
