Municipal solid waste collection and disposal service is a key element of the European strategy aimed at moving towards a circular economy. An efficient municipal solid waste collection and disposal is closely related to both lower waste tax and higher welfare of the interested population. In Italy, the lack of a centralized regulatory framework has determined heterogeneous performances of sector operators across the country. Firstly, we estimate the productive efficiency in different optimal territorial areas and secondly we forecast the economic benefits that would arise under a new regulatory regime. Our approach combines the well-known yardstick competition and the price-cap mechanisms. Results suggest that if all territorial areas converged to the most efficient ones, a potential saving between 12% and 19% emerges, i.e., up to €2bn savings out of €10.05bn total tax revenue in 2015, the reference year.

Circular economy: economic impacts of higher material recycling targets

The circular economy requires well-functioning waste management systems. In this regards, packaging waste management (PWM) plays a key role. The Italian PWM system bases on a consortium with operate in compliance with the extended producer responsibility. The key financial mechanism ruling the functioning of the system is the so-called environment contribution. This paper draws up potential socio-economic implications arising from higher recycling targets in the medium-term. Two scenarios are discussed:

Municipal solid waste collection service in Italy: efficiency analysis and a proposal for regulation

Authors Massimo Beccarello, Giacomo Di Foggia Abstract In Italy, costs related to the waste collection and disposal service are financed by the tax on waste (TARI). Nevertheless, the lack of an organic and centralised regulatory framework has determined heterogeneous economic performances of operators within different optimal territorial contexts (ATO). This analysis aims to estimate both the efficiency level reached by ATOs through a comparative assessment based on the well-known frontier
