Unit of measurement

кг на душу населения


Hazardous waste generation is the quantity of production and consumption wastes of 1-3 hazard classes generated during a certain period. Hazardous waste (other than radioactive waste) contain any hazardous substances (such as toxic, infectious, explosive, flammable, highly reactive) in a quantity and in a form to pose an immediate or potential danger to human health or environment, either alone or in contact with others.


In accordance with the Kyrgyz Law on Production and Consumption Wastes, all hazardous wastes are divided into classes based on their harmful effect on humans and the environment. Production and consumption wastes are divided into five hazard classes: first class - substances (wastes) are extra-hazardous, second class - substances (wastes) are highly hazardous, third class - substances (wastes) are moderately hazardous, fourth class - substances (wastes) are low hazardous, fifth class - substances (wastes) are virtually non-hazardous.

Rationale and interpretation

а) Global level – State parties to the 1989 Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal have agreed to take all possible measures to ensure and minimize hazardous and other (including domestic) waste generation. Chapter 20 of Agenda 21 related to overall targets, provides for ‘preventing or minimizing the generation of hazardous wastes as part of an overall integrated cleaner production approach’ (20.7).
(b) Subregional level - The EECCA Environment Strategy provides for the development of cross-sectoral action plans on waste management and economic mechanisms to facilitate the application of environmentally sound technologies, waste prevention and minimization. The EU Waste Framework Directive provides for increased efforts to prevent and reduce waste generation, ensure waste management and develop new waste disposal methods.

Method of computation

Ratio of generated production and consumption waste of 1-3 hazard classes to average annual number of population, kilograms per person. The share of recycled industrial and consumption waste of 1-3 hazard classes is the ratio of recycled and reused waste volume to the total volume of generated industrial and consumption waste of 1-3 hazard classes.
