According to data collected by the Italian Environment Agency (ISPRA) and published yesterday, in 2014 Italy reached 45,2% of separate collection with best-performing Regions like Veneto and Trentino Alto Adige with a population of up to 6 millions passing the 65% mark.
Elaborating the data of ISPRA it is quite evident how total cost for MSW management do decline once separate collection exceeds 50% . Costs are expressed in terms of population, not of tonnage!

A concise way to show (economical) sustainability towards intensive recycling and circular economy.
