The objective of the paper was to describe waste management, especially to present the basic sources of obtaining packages by agricultural producers and methods of waste disposal. 80 agricultural farms from the southern Poland were covered by the research. The analysis was carried out in farms divided according to the degree of production simplification - 5 groups of simplification were distinguished depending on the number of groups of cultivated plants which are technologically homogeneous. It was determined that the weight of the stored waste is within 0.6-1.1t∙ha-1 AL depending on the degree of simplification and the level of segregation of packagings was at the average 58.8%. In the farm owners\\\' opinion, the social activity and the service activity as well as the supply processes are the main source of waste including packaging waste.
