ACR+ member, Agència de residus de Catalunya is a partner of the second edition of #wasteinprogress, an international forum on municipal waste management which will take place on 21, 22, and 23 February 2018 in Girona (Spain). The forum will present successful case studies with waste collection models from cities all over the world with recycling results greater than 60%.

The forum will also be a connection point between the public and private sectors. Indeed, business innovation projects that can contribute to the achievement of recycling goals and results will be showcased and specialised companies will be there to guide administrations through the waste management improvement process.

This year #wasteinprogress will have a focus on tourism during which 8 successful experiences will be presented such as the island of Krk in Croatia whose population is seven times larger during the summer months and is currently in the process of implementing a model that will allow reaching a 75% selective collection. Another example presented will be the one of the Giro d’Italia which started in 2015 the Ride Green project which organises and promotes the proper separation of the waste produced by the cycling race.

More information on the programme and the details of the event are available online.
