E4 - The management of refuse and the reduction of relative costs


1 day (7 full working hours)


The way in which refuse is managed represents "the litmus paper test" which is able to indicate the environmental awareness of an entire community.

For this reason in order to speak about “the guests rubbish” correct information and the awareness of all the factors involved is required. In fact this aspect has great impact not only as far as the satisfaction of the guest is concerned but also on that of the population in general in the local area .

Therefore it is useful to ask ourselves the following question:

• How is it possibile for the Albergo diffuso to render the community of which it is a part even more realistic, responsible and attentive towards the control of the production of both solid urban and recyclable waste ?


Consist of :
• up-dating the participant on all the relevant regulations in question;
• improving the capacity to discriminate between different types of refuse;
• making the most of personal use( the means and equipment necessary to create a compost heap);
• re-couperating economic resources (often considerable)
