Five new factsheets have been published in the Circular Europe Network’s database by ACR+, overviewing good practices implemented in European heritage cities: Ibiza, Florence, Córdoba, Bergen and Mallorca.
In Ibiza, mobile waste collection points were implemented in order to combine an efficient selective collection system with a low visual and spatial impact of waste management in the urban heritage area. The City of Florence implemented an underground waste collection system in the historical city centre to reduce the aesthetic impact of waste and boost selective collection. The City of Córdoba implemented a series of waste deposit solutions aimed at addressing the problem of the visual impact of waste management in heritage city centres. Waste collection points, underground containers and container covers were integrated in the urban centre succeeding in reconciling the need to implement separate collection with environmental aesthetics and urban hygiene. In Bergen and its eight surrounding municipalities a flexible fee model for selective waste collection was introduced with the aim to reduce the overall amount of waste generated by households by rewarding customers for considering the environment and optimising selective collection. This initiative proved to be effective in reducing the total residual waste. The municipality of Palma de Mallorca implemented mobile collection points. In this system the bins can be removed from the street after the collection hours and put back during the day. This practice was developed as an alternative to conventional waste bins in those areas where there is not enough space to place them.
