Abstract:

Municipal waste management is a matter of great relevance and concern to countries in the Baltic Sea region. At present, the region possesses great disparities regarding the ways it handles and processes waste, meaning there are some countries which recover most of the waste they produce, whilst a number of other nations are lagging behind. Such disparity needs to be addressed in order to accommodate a more sustainable solution to waste management issues. This study discusses the extent to which countries in the Baltic Sea Region handle municipal waste management issues and outlines some of the work undertaken as part of the project “RECO Baltic 21 Tech”, partly funded by the Interreg VB (Baltic Sea) Programme. The study outlines the current state of affairs within the field of waste management in the Baltic region and, by means of some examples of good practice, documents a selection of the ongoing initiatives in this field before finally outlining the results of the project. Furthermore, it also describes some of the actions needed in order to foster more sustainable waste management practices in Baltic Sea region countries.
