How the recycling rate is calculated
How many glass packagings are recycled in Spain every year? The Ministry is the body responsible for calculating and publishing the official recycling rate of glass packaging and for communicating it to other official sources such as Eurostat. The official data are two years behind the current year.
With the aim of having a more current and accurate picture, and due to being the Ministry's official source of data, at Ecovidrio we make our own estimate of the rate while we wait for the official data.
