Urban waste management: tariff framework

As at December 2010, Urban Waste Management services were provided in 182 municipalities, and 47% of these (86 Municipalities) adopted the tariff system pursuant to Presidential Decree 158/99, serving a population equal to 65% of the territory served, 54% of the municipalities are still under the TARSU (Urban Solid Waste Tax) regime.

An accurate comparison of homogeneous data of Hera Group Consolidated provides some indications.

The overall increase in regulated revenues for the Urban Waste Management service to municipalities under license, equal to 3.4%, is due mostly to the average tariff increase of approximately 3.2%, which offsets the increased inflationary costs.

The remaining part is due to the added services requested by the Municipalities and income from improved control initiatives of tariff subject entities.
