Many times when discussing the implementation and optimisation of municipal solid waste (MSW) management in countries and regions all over the world, one faces arguments like ‘the proposed technological and organisational solutions are too expensive’, or ‘incineration of waste kills recycling and is detrimental to the human health’, and so on. These arguments reflect a black-and-white thinking and a partial view of the situation, and overlook technological advances during the last decades, as well as the globalisation of waste management and its changing role in becoming a resource-supplying sector.
