Community Involvement Projects for Waste Reduction Through Quantity-based Municipal Solid Waste Charging

The projects should be community-based and result-oriented, aiming to encourage all sectors in the community to try out how to implement quantity-based municipal solid waste (MSW) charging in the respective sectors with features that can help the waste producers to better understand the type and quantity of wastes they generate/dispose, to develop practices to help the waste producers get prepared for complying with MSW charging and to develop measures to reduce waste in order to pay less. Applications can be submitted throughout the year.
