ETRA, project leader of LIFE REthink-WASTE has launched the pilot activity of the project in the municipality of Bassano del Grappa (Italy). The aim is to experiment an innovative system of communication and interaction with users to inform them in real time about their behaviour related to waste disposal. Families living in the pilot area have received information on the experiment and have been invited to register via their phone. To thank the "pioneers" who want to be part of the experimentation, a prize has been provided for those who register within the indicated deadlines and maintain an active presence until the end of the experimentation.
