The Municipality of Sofia Tests Separate Collection of Food Waste
The Municipality of Sofia starts a pilot initiative to encourage the separate collection of household waste, which includes 300 households from the Nadezhda region. This is apparent from a publication on the agency's website. The initiative will last for one year.
It involves testing a system for separate collection and transport of food waste from households to the Sofia bio-waste facility. There, electricity and compost will be produced from the waste.
The households participate voluntarily, all of them receiving a free set of home containers for separate waste collection, biodegradable sacks for food waste collection, and a key to access the shared container enclosures near the blocks.
The initiative is part of the European project "Stimulating Citizen Participation in the Recycling Process - Benefit-As-You-Save". It is funded under the Balkans - Mediterranean Transnational Cooperation Program (2014-2020). The leading partner of the project is the city of Voula, Attica, Greece. Its aim is to help Sofia Municipality in its effort to stimulate citizens to collect waste separately.
It is also expected to allow for a precise quantitative analysis of the waste by the project participants and their daily habits. Another goal of the project is to inform residents of Sofia about the separate waste collection and to continue to apply it after the test period.
