Portugal produced 4.8 million tons of rubbish in 2015


Each resident of Portugal last year produced 464 kilograms of rubbish, the second largest annual amount in the past five years, for a national total of 4.8 million tons.

Industry meanwhile produced less - but more dangerous - waste, according to a report released by the Statistics Portugal institute (INE).

The '2015 Environment Statistics' report states that 36 percent of waste went for reuse or recycling, representing a 15-point increase on 2011.
