The Ministry of environmental protection and regional development considers that it is necessary to wait for 2020 to evaluate the current system and decide whether it is necessary something to change it.

In 2014, the landfills in Latvia was buried approximately 80% of waste. The EU is now discussing the possibility by 2030 to increase this figure to 10%, said at a meeting of the Commission of the diet on mandates, ethics and statements by Deputy state Secretary of the Ministry of environmental protection and regional development Alda Ozola.

The EU hopes to achieve resource recycling. One way to reduce the amount of disposed waste is sorted. Latvia had to introduce a system of waste sorting prior to 2014, the result in many places the tenants have separate garbage into different containers in their homes. However, it is not possible everywhere.
