Abstract

The circular economy is one of the major global concerns, and the transition from the linear economy to the circular economy requires not only the creation of new business models, but also a change in consumer behavior. Our research theme aims to analyze the perception of selective waste collection at the level of Galati County. As a research method we used questionnaire-based analysis with 544 respondents. The analysis was based on three working hypotheses, and in the future, we will extend the analysis to other components of the circular economy.
