(Italiano) Impatto della regolazione tariffaria sul costo di gestione dei rifiuti urbani in Italia
(Italiano) Con la legge 205/2017, ARERA è chiamata a «migliorare il sistema di regolazione del ciclo dei rifiuti, compresi differenziati, urbani e simili». Allo stesso tempo, le direttive europee sull’economia circolare, nel luglio 2018, promuovono un processo di trasformazione nel modo di progettare il ciclo dei rifiuti e, di conseguenza, di concepire la sua organizzazione e disciplina

The provision defines the criteria for the recognition of efficient operating and investment costs for the period 2018-2021, adopting the Tariff Method for the Integrated Waste Management Service (MTR)
Municipal solid waste collection and disposal service is a key element of the European strategy aimed at moving towards a circular economy. An efficient municipal solid waste collection and disposal is closely related to both lower waste tax and higher welfare of the interested population. In Italy, the lack of a centralized regulatory framework has determined heterogeneous performances of sector operators across the country. Firstly, we estimate the productive efficiency in different optimal territorial areas and secondly we forecast the economic benefits that would arise under a new regulatory regime. Our approach combines the well-known yardstick competition and the price-cap mechanisms. Results suggest that if all territorial areas converged to the most efficient ones, a potential saving between 12% and 19% emerges, i.e., up to €2bn savings out of €10.05bn total tax revenue in 2015, the reference year.
