ABSTRACT: The legislation defines the rights and responsibilities of subsoil users and other members of the waste management process, therefore, the state of affairs in this sphere largely depends on its quality. Modern "conflict" of legal acts, which is caused by the absence of state integrated concept of waste management, forms a chain of consequences that lead to their accumulation in the environment. The main problem is still the lack of coordination of environmental and mining legislation, misleading the subsoil users. The possibility to generate incentives for waste reduction, recycling and utilization depends on the state of the institutional environment, which determines the scope of the interaction of economic entities on the basis of the system of legal acts. The aim of the present research is to study the Russian legislation concerning the control of economic relations in the sphere of mining waste handling. In the article the definition of "waste" as the object of management and concepts underlying the regulatory framework of waste management. On the basis of statistical dynamic analysis the relations between the state of the regulatory framework in the waste management and the factors conditioning the negative trends have been identified and summarized. "Conservative" and "liberal" views on elimination of contradictions in the regulatory framework of mining waste handling have been studied. The directions of improvement of the regulatory framework in the sphere of mining waste management upon the "conservative" and "liberal" scenarios have been suggested
