My name is Anabela, i work at the muncipality of Vila Real, Portugal. we want to join in a consortion to reduce the waste in the lanfield, for that, we pretend to implement Pay-As-You-Throw” (PAYT) systems because it are a clear financial incentive for citizens to promote separation at source and increase selective collection rates. It is therefore a fairer method that promotes a reduction in the undifferentiated fraction produced by each citizen and an increase in the separation of recyclable waste.

Municipalities will pay for USW services according to the amount of waste they produce, under the motto “The more you pollute, the more you pay”.
