COVID-19 and its impact on municipal waste systems – Survey

Municipal and local authorities or their waste operators are invited to share their experience about the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on their waste systems by filling out an online survey (open until the end of July 2020).

The following aspects are explored: the services provided, the quantities collected, health and safety measures, finances and communication to users.

The contributions collected will be essential to better understand the crisis, identify effective solutions and increase the resilience of municipal solid waste collection systems. It will feed ACR+’s work, aiming to identify interesting practices and analyse the key factors to increase the capacity of waste management systems to respond to health crisis while keeping prevention and recycling high on the agenda.

This survey will lead to the publication of an aggregated analysis, accompanied by highlights on specific practices.
