Regional case studies
During the COLLECTORS project, 12 regional case studies were conducted. The case studies present examples of good practices in waste collection in different kinds of regional contexts. The case studies include five PPW collection systems, five WEEE collections systems and 2 CDW collections systems from different European countries.
For each case study, a life cycle assessment (LCA), cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and circularity assessment was conducted based on data collected from public sources and consultations with regional actors. Relevant social aspects focusing on motivations of the citizens to participate in waste collection were studied based on literature and focus group discussions, and using information received from local actors in charge of waste collection.
Short introductions to the case regions and summaries of the main findings from each region can be found from the links below. Some variety within the scope of the assessment and level of detail exists between the waste streams and between individual regions, depending on local data availability.
For detailed results, descriptions of the applied assessment methods and data, please see the case study reports. Links to the full case study reports can be found from the bottom of this page.
