We checked which municipalities in the Podkarpackie Voivodeship produce the most garbage per capita. See our ranking.
We developed our ranking based on data collected by the Central Statistical Office. They concern the mass of municipal waste generated annually by one resident in a given commune in 2022.
A resident of Poland produces on average 355 kg of waste per year.
