URBANREC - start of H2020 Project on urban waste

Urban waste is a major waste stream that ends up most of the time in an incinerating installation or as landfill. Even in Flanders, a region with a strong waste sorting policy, and where "the polluter will pay the bill", the average citizen still produces 30 kg of bulky waste per year (which is about 1/5 of the total amount of residual waste).

However, sorting analyses have proved that there are still possibilities for improvement by means of prevention, a more selective collection but also by means of novel sorting and recycling techniques or logistic solutions.
