[Research on the composition of residual domestic waste after separate collection in the Westfrisian area, 1993.]

Onderzoek naar de samenstelling van huishoudelijk restafval na gescheiden inzameling te West-Friesland, 1993

Synopsis

This report presents the results of sorting analyses with residual household waste, collected in the municipalities of Hoorn, Westerkoggenland and Drechterland, which co-operate in the area of West-Frisian (samenwerkingsorgaan West-Friesland). Since september 1992 a bringsystem of plastic bottles has been introduced. At the same time collection of glass, separated on colour, has been started. The sorting analyses form part of a programme called 'waste separation of dry components (ADC-Afvalscheiding Droge Componenten)', initiated by the Ministry of VROM. In this programme several pilot projects will be evaluated in order to develop a uniform system of separate waste collection.
