The global population growth in the last decades has caused an ever increasing consumption of materials and natural resources, which consequently generated more solid waste, impacting negatively on the environment and requiring a sustainable waste management system. These discarded materials are mainly composed of plastics, glass, paper, metal and organic waste. Plastics are used in various sectors, and very often have a brief period of use, which accelerates their discard. Besides collection and recycling of PET-bottles, there are no significant activities of integrated plastics waste management in Republic of Croatia so far. In the paper, an investigation of the composition of the plastic household waste will be presented as well as several waste management strategies concerning amount and types of waste and its distribution.
