Abstract

• In-depth assessment of Municipal Solid Waste Sustainability is presented. • We assess the effect of wealth and urban sprawl on sustainable waste management. • We observe that urbanization is the backbone of GHG emissions from waste. • We find a gradual shift from linear economy to circular economy. • Other countries can learn from Denmark's path towards sustainable waste management.
