On January 29th from 10.00 a.m., at the Remondini Theatre of Bassano del Grappa (VI), the Environmental Day of the Life REthinkWASTE project will be organised. A one-day event dedicated to the dissemination of the results of the pilot test that has just ended and that involved 201 users of the D collection area of Bassano.
Local stakeholders will be involved (the mayors of Etra’s member municipalities, representatives of the Basin Authority and Veneto waste service managers have been invited) to be explained the concepts of PAYT and KAYT and the project as a whole.
The event will begin with a presentation of the objectives, actions and results of the LIFE REthinkWASTE project by Etra. IFEL will then provide a presentation of the PAYT and KAYT concepts, followed by the intervention of the partners of the pilot areas (beyond Bassano: Varese, Bitetto and San Just Desvern) who will describe their experience. Finally, ARPAV will illustrate the Action Plan for the promotion of the dynamic tariff in Veneto.
Following, there will be the press conference where local press and specialized national newspapers are invited to ensure maximum dissemination of the project. At the end, the prize-giving ceremony for 60 winners of the “Riciclo e Vinco!” competition will also take place, i.e. the users who have interacted with the messages received by answering quizzes on correct waste differentiation and receiving in-depth information on the subject of recycling and the number of waste deliveries made. Vouchers worth € 100 each will then be delivered, which may be spent in affiliated shops or donated to local associations.
The event will be broadcasted via streaming on the project’s You Tube channel.
