11 Oct Analysis of the composition of raw household waste in Wallonia
RDC Environment conducted a characterization of raw household waste (OMB) for the Walloon Region in 2018.
As part of the implementation of the new Walloon Waste-Resource Plan (PWD-R) adopted on March 22 2018, the Walloon Region wished to know the quantity and composition of raw household waste (OMB) collected door-to-door from households.
The analyses carried out were intended to contribute to the achievement of several PWD-R objectives: monitoring and evaluation of the actions implemented, prevention and improvement of waste management.
Conduct of the study
The analysis of these raw household waste (OMB) was carried out on a sample of 35 municipalities, via 4 campaigns spread over 15 months.
The study was divided into 3 phases:
- Determination of the sampling plan: organization of the campaigns, establishment of the operating protocols of collections and sorting;
- Operation and supervision of collection and sorting campaigns to ensure data quality;
