WINPOL Full Medium

14 examples of “Use of data and technologies to optimise systems” and 12 “Innovative models”. This is what WINPOL project is offering to discover by browsing its newly published Good Practices Guide. This publication summarises two and half intense years of experience and knowledge sharing between several European public authorities to improve their waste management strategies by fostering the use of intelligent equipment and related practices. The practices featured tackle topics as varied as feedback to citizens, civic amenity sites, fly-tipping clearance, eco-event, monitoring and decision making, etc. The Good Practices Guide is already available in English on the WINPOL website [link to add] and will soon be translated into Slovenian and Spanish.

Another milestone of WINPOL’s first phase – which is closing at the end of the month – is the elaboration of six local Action Plans, through which partners will transfer two or three selected practices of the Good Practices Guide to their local context. This is how a waste collection monitoring platform will be developed by the Municipality of Heraklion (GR) after learning more about the waste data centre managed by LIPOR (PT) and the waste collection weighing system used by EMULSA in the city of Gijón (ES).

Following the start of the second phase this December, project partners will have two years, until November 2022, to implement these actions to concretely improve their performances regarding waste management and sustainability.
