2 Overview What is Zero Waste, why it s getting on top of the Waste (& Resources!) Agenda The EU waste policy and related drivers The pivotal role of biowaste in waste management The tools: Importance of separate collection 2 2

3 Tiny tweets, big steps forward

4 A historical track record Bellusco (1993): first curbside scheme with separation of organics 65% Carnate (1995): transparent bag to collect residuals 70-75% Torre Boldone (1997): PAYT 80% ZW Municipalities: continued re-design of the system - hitting the high 80 s, 90% in some cases

5 Scuola Agraria del Parco di Monza Zero waste is more the journey, than the destination

6 Scuola Agraria del Parco di Monza The principles of Zero Waste: Reduce the 5 R s Reuse Recycle Rot (make compost!) Re-design

7 Separate collection rates in the Waste Management Districts Priula and Treviso3 (50 Municipalities, pop ) 80% FONTE: dati Contarina 2012, Ispra dati 2010, Arpav Rapporto rifiuti urbani 2011

8 Specific residual waste (kgs*person/year) * dal 2011 i rifiuti da spazzamento delle strade vengono avviati a recupero e quindi conteggiati tra i rifiuti riciclabili FONTE: dati Contarina 2012, Ispra dati 2010, Regione Veneto 2011

9 The regulatory context: drivers from EU env policy Revised Waste Framework Directive waste hierarchy Recycling/reuse targets prevention programmes Landfill Directive diversion targets for biodeg waste obligation for pretreatment EU Climate Change Programme EU Soil Strategy

11 Why a material recycling society? Environmental benefits Local economic benefits Occupational implications (green jobs) Supply of raw materials

12 Scuola Agraria del Parco di Monza The Resource scarcity crisis

13 EP resolution of 20 April priorities for 7th EAP (the EP) Takes the view that the 7th EAP should provide for full implementation of waste legislation, including compliance with the waste treatment hierarchy while ensuring coherence with other EU policies; considers that it should set more ambitious prevention, re-use and recycling targets, including a net decrease in waste generation

14 Scuola Agraria del Parco di Monza What does it take to get there? Intensive kerbside incl. food waste + PAYT Intensive kerbside, incl. food waste separation Road containers + kerbside (doorstep) for a few dry recyclables (paper) bring systems, organics included trhough containers on the road bring systems, containers on the road for dry recyclables > 80 % 70 % 50 % 40 % 20 %

Ever decreasing marginal value of WtE From 0,6 kg CO 2 -eq/kwh towards zero ever decreasing amounts of residual waste Keep material recovery at the core of global/local strategies!
