Suggestions for “Zero Waste” Strategy
Part One - Vedelago Recycling Centre
This is a great opportunity for policymakers and stakeholders to work on product analysis: to encourage experimentation aimed at removing heavy waste fractions which heavily affect residue waste weight; to remove organic waste and diapers (sanitary tissues.) by providing incentives for household composting and above all by introducing pay as you throw tariffs on the residue, with a “costly” variable share aimed at getting users to check the quality and therefore the weight of their residual waste.
