This graphic shows the amounts and types of hazardous wastes and other wastes imported into Switzerland in 1997, based on export data and based on import data. It also shows the amount of waste disposed of, and the methods used according to export data and according to import data. The graphic also illustrates the amount and type of material recycled according to both sets of data. No information is presented on the amount of material that was handled according to 'unspecified or mixed operations'. Explanatory note from the full report: 'The export data in this graph reflects the figures submitted to the Secretariat by the States of export (exporting states]. Import data reflects Swiss reporting on imports. The inflows of these hazardous wastes were destined for either disposal or recycling.' Note: Category Y19-Y45 refers to wastes having as constituents various hazardous substances. Further explanation of Y categories can be found in Appendix 2 of the Guide to the Basel Convention Control System for Hazardous Wastes at http://www.basel.int/pub/instruct.html#appendix2.
