In 2020 

The overall waste production in the Autonomous Region of Madeira fell by only 0.8% compared to the previous year 

According to the estimates made by the Regional Directorate of Environment and Climate Change (DRAAC), the overall production of waste in 2020, in the Autonomous Region of Madeira, was around 283.6 thousand tonnes, a value that even in a pandemic context, with strong restrictions on economic activity, was only 2.2 thousand tonnes lower compared to the previous year. This 0.8% decrease is mainly explained by the reduction in the treatment of waste in the Solid Waste Treatment Plant (ETRS) of Meia Serra, which went from 133.5 to 127.2 thousand tonnes between 2019 and 2020, showing a decrease of 4.7%.

The waste destined for recycling/valorisation outside the Autonomous Region of Madeira was around 28.9 thousand tonnes, +2.7% than the previous year.
