ABSTRACT

The purpose was to evaluate and analyze the changes within the system of economics of waste management in Poland in the context of regional ecologization on example of Kujawsko-Pomorskie voivodship. For the term 2004–2015, we indicate predominant tendencies in urban wastes production and its management in Poland. The above problem was presented both in the general Polish context of changes observed in the waste management system, and in regional perspective. To fulfill the goal, particular diagnostic indicators were selected in order to describe the state of economics of waste management, which are comparable for various levels of administrative units.

Key words: waste management, municipal waste, selective waste collection, ecologization, voivodship.
