Checks against those who practice home composting

Seveso Pilot

The Municipality of Seveso started the controls of those citizens and families that practice home composting.

The Environmental Office planned a series of surveys to verify “whether and how” the domestic composting is practiced by citizens.The main objective of the surveys is to provide valuable advice to improve the quality of the compost produced. It also wants to check if composting is still done since the practice allows you to benefit from the waste tax discount, the fee that each person must pay for the service of collection and disposal of the garbage.

Furthermore, the domestic composting is included in the production of waste reduction activities under the project “Waste4Think” funded by the European Union with the announcement “Horizon 2020”, which aims, in the 3- year project, to bring the separated collection by 75% (latest data available) to 80%.
