Methodology of analysis of residual waste (2019)

Mixed municipal waste is not mechanically sorted in Slovakia, but goes directly to a landfill or incineration plant. Therefore, its content is unclear and, on the other hand, extremely important for the development of waste management and the transition to a circular economy. Analyses of mixed municipal waste are very important to support exact data in the field of waste management. Since our inception, we have implemented several dozen analyses. In our analyses, we used a new methodology such as Friends of the Earth – SPZ and JRK Slovakia. Therefore, our analyses are also a credible basis for strategy papers.

The Ministry of the Environment has decided to prepare a uniform methodology for analyses of mixed municipal waste. As one of the professional guarantors, we were part of the team of its preparation.
