3.2.1. A new report published today by Resource London shows that actions such as cleaning up dirty, dark bin areas, making sure bins are emptied regularly, and ensuring bins can take a full bag of recyclables, improve recycling behaviour in flats. Pilots run across London have shown that the introduction of a consistent package of measures (the ‘Flats Recycling Package’) helped tenants on 12 Peabody estates to recycle more Over a nine-month intervention period, there was a 22% increase in capture rates (from 38.2% to 46.8%) and a 26% increase in recycling rates (from 10.7% to 13.4%) There was also an improvement in the contamination rate which decreased by 24% (from 30.7% to 23.4%) Resource London is now working with councils and housing associations in London to get the Flats Recycling Package introduced

3.2.1.1. This article provide clear example of opportunity for the population to take an active part in the waste management. Thanks to this kind of initiative, people that live in the city center are also able to be more active about ecological matter.

10.3. Results : IT Comes To The Aid Of Bangalore's Rubbish Collectors - A new app is turning Bangalore's trash to treasure for the city's waste pickers. Bangalore - In a warehouse in India's IT capital Bangalore, eight women and men sit on bast fiber mats, sorting through rubbish, their hands flying. Tetrapaks are tossed to the left, plastic water bottles to the right, paper and cardboard behind them, old shoes in a large sack in the corner, coconuts in a bin. "My workers recognize 72 varieties of rubbish," says Mansoor proudly. The 33-year-old, who like many poor Indians has only one name, was himself a waste picker only a short time ago. Today he employs 10 families - and numbers himself among the many entrepreneurs in the city of 8.5 million. "When the sacks come in the early morning, they are weighed, the results noted down on tablet computers and the rubbish collectors are paid," the wiry young man explains cheerfully. "Then we sort and sell the products to recyclers."

10.3.1. I Got Garbage : is an application that allow waste picker in Bangladesh to have more knowledge about the waste management. It is one way to help people take part in the waste management process.

11. The problem is that actually, there is not a lot of solutions for handling waste a good and environmental-friendly way. In many countries, it's sometimes difficult to recycle your waste an eco-friendly, wherever you are in Europe or anywhere else. How ever, we recently saw some initiatives all around the world to solve this problem. During my research , I learned that lots of organization were doing some positive activities to improve and solve this problem. Technologies can help, like we saw in resource 3. We also learned that in several European cities, different initiative were currently being developed. For example, in London, we have association that focus on the circular economy and how people living in flats can participate to it. We also saw that some companies were trying to develop circular economy, by using waste, in order to reduce their environmental impact. All those kind of initiative are really good and a great way to start handling those problems.
