1 Going Towards Zero Viability of the Zero Waste practice and the key role of biowaste Principles, practice and benefits Enzo Favoino Scuola Agraria del Parco di Monza Chair, Scientific Committee, ZeroWasteEurope

2 Resource management

3

4 The historical perspective a clear direction 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 Zero waste is more the journey, than the destination

7 When you promote innnovation that goes When you promote innnovation that goes against received wisdom

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

11 The Resource scarcity crisis europa eu/highlights/europe2019s-demand-for for-resources resources- reaching?utm_source=eeasubscriptions&utm_medium=rssfeeds&utm_campaign=generic

12 The EU Circular Economy package yp Material recovery target: 70% (for packaging waste: 80%) Target on food waste prevention: 30% Mandatory separate collection of organics

13 The principles of Zero Waste: the 4 R s Reduce Reuse Recycle Re-design

14 A basic ZW workprogramme Kerbside collection include the organics! Waste prevention practices in the remit of Community Responsibility Pay-as-you-throw Check composition ii of residual waste Feed back to producers in order to address non-reusablle/recyclablerecyclable materials

15 European Network of fl Local la Authorities and civil society groups

16 The key role of organics QUANTITATIVE: fundamental to achieve highest material recovery rates OPERATIONAL: minimising organics in residual waste makes it possible to shrink collection rounds cost-optimisationoptimisation further driving effect for increased separation of dry recyclables, too) QUALITATIVE: reducing organics in residual waste makes it less dirty, remarkably more workable /recyclable

17 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) additional systems, organics included trhough containers on the road additional systems, containers on the road for dry recyclables > 80 % 70 % 50 % 40 % 20 %
