Abstract The scope of our research is to outline dynamics of the transition from informal to formal waste collection system, where the influence of social, economic and policy factors are modelled. The case study is based on lead-acid accumulator’s collection system in Latvia. The developed model is valid as decision supporting system for policy developers and as a platform for scientists for further research on dynamics of informal waste management practices. The model can be extended for other boundaries.
