It indicated that Kuwait’s per capita daily waste production is higher than the global per capita average of 0.74 kilogram as well as the per capita average of 0.81 kilogram in the Middle East and North Africa.

This means the rate of per capita waste in Kuwait is approximately 100 percent higher than the regional and global average rates.
