Information on existing systems

This chapter describes the data available concerning the present systems and in some cases, the considerations made with respect to relevant improvements. In general, data regarding collected amounts and the related costs of the operations are not available in sufficient degree to generalise. Often the interviewed stakeholders were not willing to publish data on specific costs, or costs related to amounts calculated where not directly available. Data regarding collected amounts often only cover quite short time periods, since many of the systems have only been put in place recently.
