An important task of COCOON is to collect EU-wide information on landfills, landfill management, landfill mining activities and policy issues. Therefore an inventory of these landfill issues was compiled and filled out by the COCOON partners for their region: Andalusia (Spain), Brandenburg (Germany), Cyprus, Flanders (Belgium), Malta and the Netherlands. This should result in a better understanding of potential drivers and barriers for LfM implementation and how challenges could differ among regions.
This report summarises our findings on LfM based on the questionnaire of 2017, but is not a list of all detected landfills with a detailed description of their characteristics. The emphasis of this report lies on the availability and accessibility of data on landfills and current policies.
