The EEA and its Topic Centre on Resource and Waste Management has carried out a survey of municipal waste policies and trends across the EU-25, and has consolidated the results into one easily-referenced source: a set of 25 country factsheets, freely available at http://waste.eionet. europa.eu/etcwmf/publications/factsheet. The factsheets contain information about:
u0095 national legislative frameworks on waste;
u0095 national policies, implemented or planned, to shift waste management practices in a less environmentally harmful direction according to the waste hierarchy;
u0095 data on waste generation and management;
u0095 list of tools and instruments, implemented or planned at national or regional level that aim to manage municipal waste and used tyres according to the waste hierarchy.
