The article tries to find the best solution of the system, which aims to dispose of the waste stream, being at the same time an economically justified and socially acceptable system. In order to find the best possible system three strategies for dealing with waste were considered, evaluated by 11 criteria in line with sustainable development, included in the following groups: environmental, social, and economic. The evaluation criteria are used in the multi-criteria analysis, which is the final step in the decision-making analysis. The most effective solution selected is additionally dependent on the importance of specific criteria adopted for the calculations. The proposed methodology was used and verified in the selection of a waste management system for the city of Szczecin.
