I would like to know, is there gathered information about how transport of waste in municipal waste management is arranged in member countries? As in do the municipalities put out tenders for waste pick-up, or do residents buy the service straight from private companies?

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

Transport of waste in municipal waste management is done differently in countries. Unfortunately, we do not have information about transport of waste in municipal waste management.

However, we would like to refer to a report published by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre on Best Practice in Waste Management, which includes good information about waste collection and transport. You may access the report at: http://susproc.jrc.ec.europa.eu/[…]/WasteManagementBEMP.pdf

We hope this information may be useful to you.

Kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
