Municipal waste management has been evolving into more transversal strategies, tackling the challenges of waste prevention, and aiming to produce high-quality, secondary materials to be used as valuable resources for the recycling industry. Shifting towards waste management in a circular economy approach is a complex process, which requires the involvement of the citizens, cooperation with the different players of the recycling value chain, and the implementation of technical, organisational, communicative, and incentivising instruments. However, several territories achieved to reach high performances, leading to positive outcomes: generation of valuable recycled materials, reduction of carbon emissions, job creation, while keeping sustainable costs.
The City of Thessaloniki and the COLLECTORS project invite you to its upcoming conference taking place on 11 December 2019, and focusing on the challenges, solutions, and opportunities of municipal waste management. The conference will bring together European experts from various territories to discuss the future of waste recycling, and will showcase the results of the COLLECTORS project on the identified good practices of waste collection, and their positive outcomes.
