This article presents the technological processes associated with waste management on the example of the Municipal Waste Treatment Plant in Olsztyn. Legal acts regulating waste management and the maintenance of cleanliness at the municipal level are discussed. The Municipal Waste Treatment Plant in Olsztyn processes waste from 37 municipalities in the Region of Warmia and Mazury. Waste transported to the plant is separated into sorted waste and mixed waste which undergoes further processing. An innovative solution in the country of drying waste mixed in bioreactors, where aerobic biodegradation occurs, was applied in Olsztyn. As a result of the temperature in this process, the waste is dried without additional energy from the outside. Processed waste is used in the production of alternative fuel. Around 5-15% of the collected waste is not fit for processing, and it is landfilled.
