Baden-Württemberg: 364 kilograms of waste per capita in Baden-Württemberg

In the first year, Corona meant: home office, home schooling and vacation at home. Accordingly, the mountain of rubbish at home grew massively. In the second year of the pandemic, the restrictions were less drastic. This is also noticeable in the Baden-Württemberg waste balance.

Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - In the second year of Corona, the amount of waste in Baden-Württemberg households fell slightly. According to the Ministry of the Environment, there was 364 kilograms of waste per capita in 2021 - that was around four kilograms less than in 2020. At that time, the amount of domestic waste per inhabitant had increased by around 13.5 kilograms over the year. Even in the second year of Corona, it was still about nine kilos above the level of 2019 before the pandemic.

Recyclables from households accounted for the largest chunk last year with 162 kilograms per inhabitant (minus 6 kilograms), followed by household and bulky waste (144 kilograms, minus 1.5). The waste from the bio bin, on the other hand, climbed by 3 to 58 kilograms. Secretary of State for the Environment Andre Baumann (Greens) wants to present the detailed waste statistics on Monday (10:00 a.m.) in Stuttgart.
