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.
