The article focuses on the government procurement process in the solid waste management of Limassol, Cyprus. It states that the city council of Limassol decided to procure the service of private sector in handling waste management because of the belief that private sector could provide efficient, low cost, and environmental solid waste management. It argues that contracting out of the solid waste results to better community services, work culture, and could result to privatization.
