Urban sanitation: tariff framework

In 2007 the urban sanitation service (including the consolidation of the Aspes Group) was provided to 145 municipalities. Of these, 50% (72 municipalities) adopted the tariff system in accordance with Presidential Decree 158/99 covering 64% of the population in the areas served. During the year the service boundaries increased significantly, affecting total consideration, both as regards the quality of service such as separate waste collection for example, and as regards the increased coverage of the area.

Hera Spa data only is provided below to compare it with the years prior to 2006:

With the consolidation of Aspes, there was a 9% increase in revenue in 2007 over 2006 for the urban sanitation service provided to the authorised municipalities, adjusted for the sake of comparison. This result was mainly due to an approximate growth of 1.1% in the population served, an increase in revenue per unit of about 2.7%, the recovery of revenues for unpaid or partially paid charges, and the changes in services for the remaining part.
