The Councillor for the environment of ACR+ member Tuscany region presented the data drawn up by the Regional Agency for the Recovery of Resources on separate waste collection in 2020. The 2020 figure for separate waste collection in Tuscany is still up by almost two percentage points, rising from 60.22% in 2019 to 62.12%. Furthermore, municipal waste generation, 2.156 million tonnes, dropped by more than 5% compared to 2019 (-25 kg/inhabitant). Despite the fact that the unsorted part of waste decreases by 10%, separate collections also decrease by 2.5% by weight compared to 2019, a clear sign of the influence of the pandemic on citizens' habits. The Councillor explained that almost EUR 1 million euros will be awarded both to reward the most virtuous municipalities and to stimulate small local separate collection projects.
