Opportunity municipal waste collection & recycling company for sale

CEE countries are still coping with serious waste management issues - most municipal waste still ends up in landfills, many of which are quickly filling up or do not comply with EU environmental standards. Cohesion policy is one remedy that can provide finance for waste management projects in line with the principles of the waste hierarchy, where reducing, reusing and recycling are the most desirable ways to deal with waste.

Hence, Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) is still behind Western Europe in implementing necessary changes to its waste management sector. The problem for CEE is that it now faces more or less the same legislative targets in relation to diversion from landfill, recycling and the various producer responsibility obligations; however, as it has made insufficient progress so far, the journey that it has to make must now be made in a shorter period of time. Indeed some CEE Member States are not only failing to divert waste from landfill, they are still operating landfills which in technical terms do not meet EU standards. The European Commission is currently looking at the performance of CEE Member States and there is a prospect of infringement proceedings against some CEE Member States. Furthermore, Western Europe is observing an increasing number of renewable energy projects including waste to energy, biomass, etc.
All these suggest the significant potential for growth of the waste collection, management and recycling industries in the CEE.
