Development of an Action Plan for the Management of Bio-wastes at the Cross-Border Region
The overall objective of LESS-WASTE-II is waste prevention through the joint development and implementation of actions for the better management of bio-wastes in the cross-border area.
The project’ s activities relate directly to the application of relevant European policies in the field of waste management, specifically waste prevention with the aim to minimize waste going to landfill and management of food waste, as they are adopted in the official Regional and Local Waste Management Plans of the areas involved.
LESS-WASTE-II’s specific objectives are:
• to address the need for waste management strategies that combine both regional (centralized) and local (decentralized) actions that reduce the volume of waste going to landfilling,
• to introduce home-composting and separation-at-source of the organic fraction of urban waste to local residents and municipalities of the cross-border region by providing both the necessary equipment and dissemination activities and material,
• to demonstrate new and sustainable ways of management and re-utilization of bio-waste to local authorities and vocational groups through trainings and equipment demonstration,
• to initiate synergies and a culture of awareness among target groups that serves the needs of the citizens.
