CONSTITUTIONAL COURT OF LITHUANIA STANDS FOR MORE COMPETITION
On 5 March, the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Lithuania ruled out that municipalities can authorise a municipal company to provide waste management services without a competitive procedure, only in exceptional cases, when continuous, high quality and well-accessible waste management services could not be ensured otherwise.
The sector of waste management still remains a serious matter that receives a lot of Council’s attention. During 2014 alone, the Council found 3 breaches in the waste management sector. The support of the Court is extremely important in changing faulty municipal practice that limits consumer opportunities to receive high quality services for reasonable prices.Competition Council Spokesperson
