The relationship between MSW and education: WKC evidence from 25 OECD countries. Waste Management1 2020

Nowadays municipal solid waste (MSW) has become a vital part of the economy, both as an output of human activities and as an input in the economy through material or energy recovery. Education has been shown to be closely related to the amount of MSW generated. The present research uses panel data obtained for 25 world counties for the years 1995–2016 and the examined variables include MSW, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and education level.
