Waste Management during the pandemic
Dozens of organizations have used and shared the collection. Waste collection and treatment are essential services to society. This was a well-known fact even before the current pandemic. But their importance was further proven during the lockdown. Key workers like waste collection and management staff continued to keep our cities functional, even if doing so put them at a higher risk of infection.
Collection of practices
That’s why ACR+ gathered a collection of practices of waste management during this pandemic from around the world. The European Commission recommended it as a source of information in a recent briefing and its author Paolo Marengo, ACR+’s programme manager was invited to talk about the topic during a series of webinars. The webinar from Zero Waste Europe on Covid-19 in relation to waste management was particularly interesting. The collection, as well as a summary of the trends observed, are available on the ACR+ website.
