This book gives an insight into how a city evaluates its waste disposal policies. The events described in the book center on Naples, but extend to Italy and the rest of Europe. In Naples the issue of waste disposal has been at the center of media attention. It raises questions about whether Italy is threatened by a garbage crisis. Naples discovered that it could incorporate aggressive measures in waste disposal. The two authors engage in a straightforward and serene discussion resulting in a one-of-a-kind work. They leave bias and ideology behind. Waste management is a complex issue. Increased waste is related to the frenetic growth of the European economy. Northern and Southern Italy answered the problems of waste disposal in different ways. Hence the need for a debate on the real problems posed by the management of collective property and environmental resources. In conclusion the authors look at future prospects and suggest practical solutions.
