Abstract: 
Der Entsorgungswirtschaft wird im Rahmen wettbewerbspolitischer Diskussionen kaum Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet. Dabei ist der Wettbewerb teilweise sehr schwach ausgeprägt. Gebührenfinanzierte kommunale Unternehmen sind im Bereich des Siedlungsmülls oft allein für die Entsorgung verantwortlich; aktuelle Rekommunalisierungstendenzen befördern das Engagement der Kommunen weiter. Nun hat die Monopolkommission an der zunehmend von kommunalen Unternehmen dominierten Marktstruktur in der Hausmüllentsorgung Kritik geübt.
Abstract (Translated): 
Competition in the waste management sector is very weak. Especially in the fields of domestic waste management, mostly local authority companies financed by fees are solely responsible for disposal. Furthermore, current tendencies toward remunicipalisation strengthen the role of local authorities. Due to this development, the German Monopolies Commission recently criticised the market structure of waste management, which has become increasingly dominated by local authority companies. A comprehensive analysis shows that the ongoing development is unfavourable for both economic and ecological reasons. Thus, a new organisation of the waste management market promoting competition is necessary. Within such a competitive framework, local authorities should act as organisers and controllers of market behaviour.
