Nowadays we should consider the wastes in a much wider sense as an expedient raw material source. From a logistic point of view the fact that the flows of the second raw materials are not constant in the waste logistics systems is a challenge. The quantity of the wastes of production, consumption and recycling are varying in time and space. The arising municipal wastes usually can be found in smaller items then previously, have relatively more utilization opportunity when they appear separated on the refuse dumps. Optimal cargos should be organized by the environmental aspect of road transport services. Recently road transport is one of the main polluters. With the internalisation of external costs of road transportation the price of waste as basis of secondary raw material will increase. The article describes these problems and the methods of which can be used for the solution.
