Project deliverable: Best Practice Municipal Waste Management

Commissioned by the Federal Environmental Agency, INTECUS generated an information pool that addresses actors with a genuine interest to pursue the development of sustainable waste management infrastructures and adopt environmental policy objectives similar to those known from the European Union. The electronic tool is freely available and provides a consolidated and systematic overview of waste management technologies and equipment which are in practical application in Germany and considered proven means to attain an effective waste management. Technical data and supporting details are merged with information on the making up of waste management systems based on the proposed technologies, and with links to their German providers and operators.

PAYT - Pay As You Throw

From February 2001 to November 2002 INTECUS was part of the research team of the PAYT-project. PAYT is the abbreviation of Pay-As-You-Throw. The approach of Pay-As-You-Throw in waste management is to realise the polluter pays principle in a fair manner by charging people in accordance to the amount of waste which they actually generate. Done in conjunction with the waste collection it means that the generators of the waste pay for the provided service an amount which is directly related to the amount of residual solid waste disposed by them. In contrast to conventional waste fee systems, households covered by a PAYT system wont get charged a flat rate for waste collection nor shall their calculated waste charges be based on the number of household members, living space or other supplied utilities such as water and electricity.
