The eleventh annual meeting to review progress in municipal waste management. In the last three years there have been compared experiences in main EU capitals like Berlin, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Madrid, Milan and Rome, in medium sized towns like Lubljana, Munich, Florence, Boulogne and Parma and in “southern” urban areas like Barcelona, Porto, Bari, Naples and Palermo gathering a very useful know how and obtaining a large favor of public and professionals. This year based on the success of past conferences, and within a perspective of circular economy, Utilitalia, the national association of public services of Water, Environment, Electricity and Gas, has decided to continue comparing experiences in urban areas coming from abroad and from associated companies. It will allow keeping on matching methodologies and results achieved in the urban framework, also in the light of different national contexts.
