Municipalities have contracted the collection service to regionally organized municipal public owned enterprises (PoE) and partly to private companies. Some have their own landfill, while others are depended on KLMC, the national public enterprise managing landfills.

Of 38 Kosovo municipalities, the following municipalities do not have SWMPs: Dragash/Dragas and Malisheve/Malisevo municipality. Hence, at this stage the aforementioned municipalities shall be supported to draft their SWMPs.
