Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)  is LACMW plus commercial and industrial waste similar to that generated by households which is collected by commercial operators (i.e. not by or on behalf of a local authority). This is the definition which will be used by the UK for reporting against EU landfill diversion targets. It includes all waste types included under European Waste Catalogue Code 20 and some wastes under Codes 15 and 19.
