Local waste management in the Czech Republic: Limits and merits of public-private partnership and contracting out
Gabriela Vaceková and
Utilities Policy, 2017, vol. 48, issue C, 201-209
The paper focuses on the efficiency of different forms of local service delivery in the Czech waste collection market, which shows a high degree of concentration. Based on data collected in 2014 from 2065 municipalities, the results of regression analysis indicate that public-private partnerships are more expensive than other delivery forms. Contracting out leads to cost savings, especially for larger municipalities. The results for municipalities with fewer than 500 inhabitants show that a crucial role in municipal cost reduction is played by inter-municipal cooperation.
