The main purpose of the project is to support local authorities in adopting PAYT (“Pay-as-you-throw”) waste tariffs, which will encourage waste prevention and source segregation practices, fostering separate collection. It is also an objective of the project to extend developed methodologies to other municipalities, thus contributing to a resource efficient Europe and to the implementation of the European environmental strategies and Policies. The consortia is lead by the Coimbra Polytechnic and includes seven other partners: the Lisbon Municipality, the Aveiro Municipality, the Condeixa-a-Nova Municipality, the Aveiro University, the Larnaka Municipality, the Vrilissia Municipality and the National Technical University of Athens.
