Re-value of Municipal Waste – Strategic Approach

I. Sztangret and K. Bilińska-Reformat
Abstract—Municipal waste is a tool for building a pro-social image strategy by creating the conditions of social well-being in a strategic time perspective, especially thanks to the applied processes of the biological-mechanical processing and the closed-circuit economy. But, in the new approach, municipal waste is connected with the notion of “re-use” or re-consumption. It can be stated, that waste value is built in a system of relations between the market entities, the secondary market, business entities, and the involvement of government and non-profit organizations. Therefore, the aim of the article is to demonstrate the value of municipal waste, built through involvement of many entities and technologies. Especially, the strategies of building re-value by trade, on domestic and global scale is the main area of interest of the authors. In the article, conceptual and qualitative research methods of empirical research (case study), mainly were used. The results of the research show that the effective waste management and the subject of research - municipal waste has a strategic value and it is certainly a tool of implementation of the concept of social marketing. The research on the issues of strategic aspects of municipal waste in re-value perspective opens up a wide field of possibilities, that have not been sufficiently used, especially in the relations of primary and secondary market entities, firms of the sector under review and "re-life/re-use" points/trade.

Index Terms—Waste management sector, re-cycle, re-value, re-use.
