The current pandemic of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, not only has unprecedented impacts on our personal lives, but it also raises questions and brings challenges regarding municipal waste management practices and procedures.
Answering to a request from some of its members, ACR+ started gathering data on the different systems and solutions implemented across Europe, knowing that situations are diverse and dependent on the national and local constraints as well as means available. The aim is not to build an extensive database but rather to provide interesting insight on the role local and regional authorities play to reshape and adapt municipal waste management to the current situation.
Have a look at the practices from over 18 countries (so far): https://www.acrplus.org/en/municipal-waste-management-covid-19
