LIPOR is part of the Interreg Europe WINPOL Good Practices Guide

14 examples of "Use of data and technologies to optimize systems” and 12 "Innovative models”. This is what the Interreg Europe WINPOL project is offering you to discover by browsing its newly published Good Practices Guide. This publication summarizes two and half intense years of experience and knowledge sharing between several European public authorities to improve their waste management strategies by fostering the use of intelligent equipment and related practices.

It is a practical tool for cities and regions looking for new and concrete approaches to minimize waste generation and reach resource efficiency. In an even more interesting way, those practices also highlight that innovation does not always have to rhyme with ICT or big data. Sometimes, a good old carton box (as used in Styria to boost reuse of small items) works wonders and might even achieve better results than an app!” commented Francesco Lembo, Managing Director of ACR+.

The Good Practices can also be consulted online and are part of the Interreg Europe database which gathers over a thousand of inspiring solution to improve regional policies.

Another milestone of WINPOL’s first phase is the elaboration of six local Action Plans. For each territory targeted by the project, two or three practices of the Good Practices Guide have been selected and a plan has been drafted to transfer them to the local context. This is how a waste collection monitoring platform will be developed by the Municipality of Heraklion (GR) after learning more about the waste data centre managed by LIPOR (PT) and the waste collection weighing system used by EMULSA in the city of Gijón (ES).
