From 20,000 to 135,000 residents in the high season
This island paradise in the Adriatic is a pioneer in a country with little tradition of selective waste collection. Its population is seven times larger during the summer months. It is currently in the process of implementing a model that will allow it to reach 75% selective collection.

Over 1.1 million overnight stays annually
This alpine valley located in the heart of the Dolomites receives a large number of visitors throughout the whole year. The Ski World Cup has been held there, as well as other sports events that attract large crowds every season. Its model of selective waste collection allows it to achieve record figures.

Over 7 million visitors annually
With over 2.5 million inhabitants, Taipei was an example of poor waste management and urban hygiene. Implementing policy changes has allowed the city to turn this situation around and achieve selective collection results that are above average for cities about its size, with similar difficulties. The introduction of pay-as-you-throw systems with prepaid bags and segregated collection of food waste are some of the aspects that have made this possible.

One of the cycling Grand Tours, at the head of the Ride Green project
This event lasts more than twenty days and has very complex logistics. In 2015, the organisation of the Giro started the Ride Green project, which organises and promotes the proper separation of the waste produced by the race. The project also takes advantage of the race's progress through dozens of municipalities to raise awareness in places that still haven't achieved good selective collection results.
