In July 2020, the Florence School of Regulation enlarged the scope of its activities to include Municipal Waste Management with a kick-off webinar that gathered more than 100 participants. We now propose to further explore some key economic challenges that the municipal waste sector is facing. In a context where the municipal waste sector faces long-lasting structural issues, such as fragmented, small-sized, and mostly local markets unlikely to generate sufficient financial resources to face massive investment needs, it seems crucial to analyse the different financing models of municipal waste and assess their level of cost recovery across EU countries. In a context where important investment will have to be made to reach increasingly challenging recycling objectives and pave the way for a circular economy, it also seems key to examine the economics of separately collected bio-waste stream.
