NOVAMONT collaborates with AMSA and Municipality of Milan
The separate collection of organic waste is one of the strengths of Milan waste management system: these good practices have been encouraged by the introduction of the door-to-door collection system, with a process that began in November 2012 and that in June 2014 reached 100% coverage of Municipality of MIlan.
In May 2014 this system had allowed the city to reach a level of 50% separate waste collection (compared to 36.7% in 2012), a record in Europe (compared to other European cities counting more than 1 million inhabitants) this makes Milan a “virtuous case” at an international level of the “Italian model” for separate collection of organic waste.
Moreover, NOVAMONT, along with AMSA and the Municipality of Milan, has carried out information campaigns for citizens aimed at encouraging the reuse of compostable carrier bags, distributed at large supermarket chains counters, for the collection of the organic fraction of household waste.
We would be pleased to hear from any UK local authorities or organisations who would like to learn more about this case.
