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 requires a licence issued by the Regulator for the disposal of municipal waste at a landfill site and 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 11 landfill sites for municipal waste disposal.
More information about regulation of services of municipal waste disposal is available in Latvian.
