Island and remote areas face particular challenges for the management of their waste, due to the difficulties associated to its collection, the lack of infrastructure or lack of accessibility to treatment units. These constraints make it difficult to transpose good practices traditionally used in urban areas, and to achieve economies of scale for the treatment of their waste. Islands also have to deal with various impacts linked to tourism: important seasonal variations necessity to adapt the collection infrastructure to tourists with very diverse backgrounds and environmental behaviours.

The second public conference of the COLLECTORS project will take place on 26 September 2018 in Malta, hosted by ACR+ member Wasteserv Malta – the company in charge of waste management on the island. It proposes to focus on these issues through discussions and sharing of experiences by different European public authorities, along with other presentations focusing on how to improve municipal waste recycling performances. In particular, two round tables will be organised. The first one will discuss the challenges and solutions linked to waste management on islands and remote areas. Participants of the second round table will explain how they re-shaped their waste management systems to boost their performances.

The draft programme is available online.
