The change in the waste management could be subsequently co-funded from the Operational Programme Environment, which contains tools for supporting the development of integrated waste management systems.
The study included the following activities:
- Data collection concerning statistics of waste production and the existing institutional arrangement (scope of the associations of municipalities, type of contractual relations, private suppliers of waste management services).
- Summary of the requirements of main intentions concerning waste management.
- Evaluation of the status and formulation of conclusions in the form of necessary changes in the waste management system until 2020.
- Screening of the main and partial alternatives of the technical solution with an output in the form of a short list of alternatives for further evaluation.
- Detailed descriptions of alternative recommendations to the technical solution (crushing and treatment line for residual mixed municipal waste, biogas station, composting plant, conveyer station, bio-waste collection, storage system and building waste handling).
- Evaluation of the technical alternatives based on the quantification of financial costs (capital and operational) and selected socio-economic costs and benefits (ie the costs and benefits for the whole society).
- Proposal and evaluation of the institutional solution with recommendations.
- Overview of the recommended alternative and estimated costs of investments and operation.
