The state secretary cited analysis of last yearʼs waste management data aggregated in the National Environmental Information System. Some 65.3% of all waste is recycled, compared to just 24.6% in 2007 and 50.1% in 2015. With this, Hungary has taken a significant step towards the creation of a "circular economy", Boros added.
