“Separation, Collection, Recycling” – workshop on building up an effective separate collection and recycling system in Georgia

How should citizens best separate waste into different fractions (plastic, paper, glass, metal)? How do we convince the public to separate their waste? How could municipalities best organize the collection and assure that the collected materials will be recycled? These were some of the topics discussed during the workshop, organized by the Solid Waste Management Company of Georgia (SWMCG) together with the projectIntegrated Solid Waste Management System – Kutaisi”
