GLRPPR Sector Resource: The story of Capannori -- A Zero Waste champion

Title:
The story of Capannori -- A Zero Waste champion

Abstract:
Nowhere is the phrase "Mighty oaks from little acorns grow" truer than in the small town of Capannori, Italy, where a small but determined movement to stop the construction of an incinerator led to an Italy-wide grassroots Zero Waste movement. The area has one of the highest municipal recycling rates in Europe and is an example of strong policy decisions and community participation achieving groundbreaking results.
