COLLECTORS | Register now for the conference “How to adapt best practices for waste collection to local constraints?”

 

Is there such thing as a “Best Practice” for waste collection? While several general principles – such as source separation, communication, incentives – are known to increase recycling rates, their concrete application might be challenging. Indeed, a practice that is successful in a territory might not produce the same high results when applied to a different context. For instance, civic amenity sites offer a compelling solution for source separation; however, their effectiveness is challenged in a context with high population density. Another example: traditional communication campaigns are likely to have a limited impact in territories with a significant proportion of tourists. Hence, the importance of adapting common best practices to local constraints.

The COLLECTORS project invites you to discuss these questions during its first public event hosted by CONTARINA S.p.A. on 22 March 2018.

These issues will be debated by a panel of waste experts, and representatives of European public authorities will expose their own solution to adapt common waste practices to their specific local challenges. Discussions will contribute to determine which local constraints are important to take into account and how they can be addressed.

The detailed programme will soon be here.
