Summary/Abstract: The study is focusing the problems of local authorities in Bulgaria in achieving the goals of prevention, recycling, and reuse of household waste. A representative study of the municipality citizens’ opinion is performed. The aim of the study is to identify certain problems of the population and recommendations for their solution to be derived. The results show that the citizens are almost fully satisfied with the solid waste collection system, whereas that is not the case with the separate collection system. Based on these and the recommendations of the interviewed participants, a conclusion for certain measures which the municipality could take has been made.
