Zero waste as a Best Environmental Practice to address POPs issues created by waste incineration and/or landfilling of waste: a case study in Hungary.
The aim of this activity was to promote an alternative waste management practice to waste incineration as a Best Environmental Practice used to avoid POPs formation. The study documents the recycling program organized by HuMuSz that began with the Ministry of Environment and expanded to 11 institutions including the Parliament, Duna-Ipoly National Park, Prime Minister's office building and others. The materials included paper, PET, glass, batteries, electronic equipment, fluorescent bulbs, furniture and office hazardous waste. This activity was part of a broader awareness-raising campaign that included the collection of information about zero waste practices in Hungary as basic information for discussion about Best Environmental Practices according to Article 5 of the Stockholm Convention.
