Waste Waste
Published: 26 Nov 2010 Modified: 21 Mar 2015

Based on the application of a set of prioritisation criteria, waste management has been determined as a high priority policy area. Since the National Waste Management Policy – and a number of plans, including the Solid Waste Master Plan and the National Waste Management Plan – is already in place, the focus of future MSPE work on policy development will be refining of policy objectives/setting targets and an evaluation of the implementation of existing policies. A comprehensive review of waste policies is proposed for the period 2011 - 2012. At that time, the MSPE should:

·        initiate and lead the process of evaluating the existing policy (first half of 2011);

·        analyse the key problems with implementation of the current policy and assess the state of waste management systems and identify possible solutions (second half of 2011);

·        organise a wide consultation process (from the onset until the end of the process);

·        formulate new policy (first half of 2012).

Meanwhile, there will be a need to formulate policies for specific waste topics.


Municipal Waste

When determining locations for establishing certain networks – regional landfills, transfer stations, recycling centres, composting centres – the need for inter-municipal cooperation for the construction of regional sanitary landfills was taken as the starting point. The quantity of waste is given solely as an indicator and is related to the entire estimated quantities of waste to be disposed of at regional landfills, not specifying the quantity of recyclable waste or waste suitable for composting or other forms of processing.
