The collection of household waste between optimization of public expenditure and additional costs
Making public services work, avoiding their interruption and ensuring that they are adapted to the changing needs of all citizens is a legitimate mission of the State, and one that requires the deployment of significant human, technical and financial resources. However, the inability of the State to mobilize these resources "forces" it to look for other management and financing alternatives, particularly from the private sector. In Morocco, recourse to this sector takes several forms, but the most widespread modality is the Delegated Management, which was introduced in the Kingdom in 1997. It is a contract through which the public entity delegates the mission of providing a public service to a private or public entity in return for periodic remuneration.
This paper studies the effectiveness of this management method for the household waste collection service. The aim is to verify whether the use of Delegated Management favors the optimization of the public expenditure allocated to it, or on the contrary, whether it constitutes a source of uncontrollable additional cost. However, it should be noted that the results found are closely linked to the territory and the nature of the sector studied, which means that they must be constantly updated.
