A look at the principal mechanism that need to be adopted to perform variable waste charging makes clear that the implementation of PAYT is resting on three main pillars:

1.    Identification (for reasons of accountability to the waste generator),

2.    Measurement (of the generated amount of waste and/or services obtained for it), and

3.    Unit pricing (for individual charging according to the availed service).

The fulfillment of the three basic principles and the many different ways of combining them, lead to a great spectrum of choices for the technical implementation of PAYT. For someone to make the proper selection from these choices, firstly, must keep in mind the different factors and aspects that relate, and in great degree are defined, from the specific arrangements of an area.
