ISWA / RDN / EXPRA Workshop

Challenges to separate collection systems for different waste streams – barriers and opportunities. October 9, 2014 – NOVOTEL BUCAREST CITY CENTRE, Bucharest, Romania
In the light of the proposed by the European Commission increased recycling targets, as part of the Circular Economy Package, the problem that certain valuable packaging is disappearing or even not reaching the established collection infrastructure of municipalities and compliance schemes, gains major importance. The higher the prices for secondary raw material are the more material is disappearing which makes it more and more difficult to finance the infrastructure and to reach recycling targets.

The workshop will focus on the problem of the relation between the regular collection of valuable parts of the waste stream and the informal sector and will offer a platform to exchange experiences on the effects of this problem and possible solutions.
