Increasing the separate waste collection rate by implementing an efficient separate collection system for public events.

In the first stage, the pilot action will concentrate on a pilot project concerning the separate collection of waste in public events.

All the generated waste produced during one (or more) public event(s) organized by the municipality will be collected in a creative manner and with sustainable criteria, in order to modify citizen’s perceptions, as a trigger for a behavioral change.

After the pilot project implementation, evaluation and validation, it is intended to extent the separate collection criteria implemented during the pilot project to all the public events organized in Bucharest (or at least to all the public events organized by the Municipality).
