The ACR+ member Romanian Federation of Intercommunity Development Associations (FADI) will host a conference on the practical applications of integrated waste management systems (IWMS) at the Grand Phoenicia Hotel in Bucharest on 21 February 2019.
The conference, titled “Implementing traceability criteria for containers in accordance with Act 31/2019 and Ordinances 1271/2018 and 1362/2018” and featuring speakers from a dozen state institutions, comes at a time when Romanian municipalities must overhaul their waste management infrastructure in order to attain ambitious recycling targets. As a consequence of the above-mentioned ordinances introduced in 2018, local governments have until the end of 2020 to recycle half the waste generated within their jurisdictions. Furthermore, the ordinances introduce a nationwide deposit-refund system for various types of one-way beverage and food containers that will take effect in the first half of 2019.
The new laws are expected to turn the Romanian recycling market on its head, as it will shift the responsibility from private-sector owned PROs to municipalities for waste sorting and for meeting recycling targets.
Some of the topics that the event will tackle include the current state of affairs in waste management in Romanian municipalities; the different steps involved in IWMS; ensuring the traceability of waste in such systems; and financing options available for municipalities to fund IWMSs.
