Our paper presents problems of local waste management systems in Poland using the example of the environmentally valuable area of Pobiedziska urban-rural commune, which has serious problems with municipal waste management. Right now, illegal waste sites are common all over this precious area due to low ecological awareness by the inhabitants.
We will show problems caused by the previous waste management system (until 1 July 2013) in comparison with the current, recently introduced waste management system. Illegal dumping sites together with local ignorance remain the hot issue within the local waste management system in Pobiedziska urban-rural commune.
