Event description

Description

City problems should and can be solved in an open format engaging authorities, citizens, scientists and entrepreneurs at the same time in the same room!

Come and listen innovative ideas how to improve Tallinn biowaste separate collection in kitchens, catering establishments, food processing industries and stores.

The most critical issue in the present waste management system in Tallinn is the biodegradable fraction in municipal waste, that should be collected separately. The main reasons citizens bring out as obstacles in waste separate collection are lack of space for different bins in the kitchen and the long distances from the nearest biowaste container.

Help finding the most feasible solution together for Tallinn. The best solution wins support for the pilot project for one year in Tallinn to implement the solution and improve it further.
