Summary/Abstract: The developed methodology for measurement of the performance of a municipal waste management system (MWMS) is introduced in the paper. It aims to measure an efficiency of regional integrated waste management system (IWMS) for municipalities. The set of standard indicators of Waste Management Plan of the Czech Republic for 2003–2013 (WMP) was extended by specific developed indicators, directly evaluating individual elements and effects of the regional IWMS.
