PlastiCircle to highlight recycling reward scheme at Waste in Progress forum

19 February 2019

The PlastiCircle project is set to feature at the International Forum on Waste Management, Waste in Progress, on 6-8 March 2019 in Girona.

This is the third edition of the Waste in Progress international gathering, with this year’s line-up featuring a host of topics ranging from technological solutions for collection of municipal waste, to pay-as-you-throw (PAYT) solutions, to lab spaces for municipal waste management innovations.

On 6 March, during the first round of Innovation Labs, PlastiCircle lead partner ITENE will present the project’s innovations in rewarding good recycling practices with the use of smart containers. This is one of several innovations that PlastiCircle is developing across the plastics value chain – with pilots in three cities across Europe.

The Waste in Progress forum will also feature other PlastiCircle partners such as Ecoembes and a host of municipalities from across the globe, including Seattle (United States), Leipzig (Germany) and Bern (Switzerland).

Additional features in Girona include a business expo and workshop series, featuring a host of public and private actors with an interest in innovative municipal waste solutions.

Future participants can register online, with a 10% conference fee discount for PlastiCircle partners. The event can also be followed live via Twitter at @wasteinprogress with the hashtag #wasteinprogress.
