This paper, based on the analysis of current municipal expenditures on waste management, compares expenditure per capita and examines the impacts of competitive environment and type of waste management company (character of ownership) on the expenditure efficiency. Expenditures are compared by the number of competing companies in neighbouring municipalities by the districts and municipality size groups. First part of the paper briefly describes current situation around environmental protection municipal expenditure in Czech Republic and explains reason why the area of current municipal waste management expenditure has been chosen for the efficiency evaluation. Second part is dedicated to the idea of the efficiency evaluation methodology which is based on Cost-efficiency Analysis (CEA) and assessing the impact of a competitiveness and type of company to the efficiency. Evaluation and comparison is performed on the all 673 South Moravian municipalities for each of the years in the five-year period ended 2011.
