The majority of companies that produce waste and traders in the sector do not have, or only partially have, the know-how to cope adequately with the environmental aspects of company management. This leaves them open to increased risks of legal sanctions. Moreover, legislation in the waste management sector changes frequently.
All companies that produce waste and carry out business in this sector are obliged to adapt to the legislative changes.
The objective of the department for Environmental Protection consists in consolidating information and consultation with companies in South Tyrol on the legal and administrative aspects of waste management.
