Abstract: Abstract The article assesses trends in municipal solid waste (MSW) processing in Siberian regions. The weakness of the institutional environment in the MSW management sphere is demonstrated, which acts as a key factor hindering the development of modern forms of recycling. An integrated approach to scenario modeling of MSW management is proposed, which makes it possible to obtain estimates of the required capital investments in this sphere for Siberian regions. The authors demonstrate the high requirements on the profitability of sales of secondary material resources and the lack of incentives for investments to increase the level of MSW processing, which significantly limits the effectiveness of government measures to reform the industry.
