Collection of bio-waste in densely populated areas

4th December 2018 · 2:00 PM (CET)

Today, only 30% of bio-waste across Europe is collected separately and recycled in a sustainable way but it accounts for the largest fraction in municipal solid waste.

In densely populated areas the collection is not easy but on the webinar you can learn which is the ultimate system to maximise it and make it cost-efficient.

Our experts will also talk about the best practices and how new technology could help in the process.
