With organic waste representing over 50% of municipal solid waste, it is essential to improve the way we manage and recycle this type of refuse. Over the past three years, the 8 partners of the SCOW project has helped local communities in Spain, France, Palestine, Israel and Malta to develop waste management plans that focus on the separation of bio-waste and turn it into something useful.

 

Cooked leftovers, kitchen debris, garden waste, paper products are materials that easily and quickly decompose. When transformed in compost, organic waste can be used in gardening and agriculture as natural nutrient for soil fertility.
