The COLLECTORS project – waste COLLECTiOn systems assessed and good pRacticeS identified – focuses on good practices for the collection and sorting of three waste categories: packaging and paper waste, waste electrical and electronic materials (WEEE), and construction and demolition waste (CDW).

Project co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme, 2017 - 2020.


Having completed the first out of three phases of the project in early 2019 — the one focused on inventorying waste data — the COLLECTORS Consortium published two important deliverables in June. The first was a waste platform containing information about 242 waste collection systems from 24 countries. The second was a library containing the data sources that the partners consulted while doing research for the web platform.  

The second phase of the project, which assesses the performance of waste collection systems through case studies, is already well underway. Twelve case studies are currently being analysed from an economic, environmental, societal acceptance and value chain perspective. Some preliminary results of the analyses were already presented at the COLLECTORS conference in Warsaw on 26 June.

The partners are currently preparing to launch the third (implementation) phase during autumn in order to translate the knowledge and information accumulated thus far into policy recommendations, guidelines and capacity building materials. Two upcoming meetings in Thessaloniki and Brussels will further cement the transition from theory to practice.
