Revision of the auction mechanism for the allocation of waste in Italy

Lear provided an independent economic assessment on the competitive impact of a revision of the current auction system implemented by a waste management and recycling consortium to allocate the collected material. In order to assess the compliance to competition principles, Lear delivered an economic analysis of the potential criticalities that may arise from an extension of the contract duration and the introduction of a price indexing mechanism for the awarded contracts. Both aspects are to be firstly implemented only on a selection of contracts in a pilot phase in order to assess the effectiveness of this revision.
