Abstract

Waste collection is a problem frequently attracting the interest of both academics and practitioners due to a continuously increasing number of laws addressing its efficiency and effects on humans and the environment when inefficiencies occur. In recent years, interesting results have been achieved through the use of innovative underground collection systems. Main expected effects are connected with improvements in pollutant and noise emissions during waste collection and transport, low obstruction to traffic during waste collection, small space requirement for collecting bins. Nevertheless, the design, production and installation process for these underground systems still remains a crucial aspect, given the strict deadlines that must be respected. Difficulties arise when customizations are required. Hence, project management is a key issue for ensuring expected results in terms of time, costs and perceived quality. In this paper, steps characterising project management in the field of underground waste collection systems, especially focusing on customised items, is analysed. Data obtained in a case study is commented on.
