Whereas until recently the majority of waste was disposed of, in a circular economy it has become a key economic issue. As a result, international and European Union regulations on waste management have constantly evolved to enhance the economic value of objects and substances that are disposed of. This does not make it easy to interpret and apply these rules. EU law on waste management is in fact shifting because it is torn between environmental policy and internal market policy.

With a constant concern for systematisation and clarification, the book describes the impact of primary and secondary legislation on Member States’ policing powers in the field of waste management. Beyond a descriptive analysis of the texts in force, the book attempts to critically highlight the potentialities and weaknesses of an important part of European Union law.

This book is intended for practitioners specialising in administrative and environmental law, as well as for academics and anyone interested in the subject.
