The cost of waste management has doubled

According to the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME), the cost of municipal waste management - garbage, sewage sludge and pruning waste - has roughly doubled in ten years. years. Before deduction of any financial support, it varies from 130 to 220 euros per tonne, ie 40 to 95 euros per inhabitant per year. However, this figure should increase less sharply in the coming years, says ADEME.

Econology note: If it is "normal" that the mass of waste increases, it is strange that the specific cost also increases.
In fact, technological and organizational upgrades to depuration plants, sorting centers or incineration plants tend to reduce these costs ...
Unless :
- the investment costs are taken into account precisely (thus distorted calculations since the amortization will come sooner or later!)
- this is a reflection of the "over" cost of sorting waste. In this case it is the source (packaging) that would intervene ... because live grants is it reasonable in the long run?
