The PUC regulates only the disposal of municipal waste at landfill sites in the municipal waste management sector. In order to provide the service of municipal waste disposal, a public service provider must be registered in the register of service providers and requires a tariff for the service of municipal waste disposal approved by the Regulator. Other activities related to organising and supervision of services of municipal waste management are within the competence of local governments.
There are 11 providers of public services in Latvia which provide services of municipal waste disposal at 10 landfill sites for municipal waste disposal.
More information about regulation of services of municipal waste disposal is available in Latvian.
