| Product Descriptions:
The APPRICOD guide 'Towards Sustainable Plastic C&D Waste Management in Europe' is available in 6 languages.
The objectives of this guide are:
to provide information on the technical, environmental and economic aspects of plastic C&D waste management
to give an insight into current leading experiences for plastic C&D waste sorting and recycling based on the European and specific national legal and financial
to learn from the experience of the pilot projects carried out at local and regional level as part of the Life Project “APPRICOD”. These pilot projects aimed
to implement a variety of scenarios for sorting and selectively collecting plastic C&D waste
to draft practical recommendations for public authorities, esp. local and regional authorities, and good practices for the C&D sector with the common objective
of promoting plastic C&D waste sorting and recycling
