Separate collection of food waste has more than 20 years of experience in Italy. Many Cities are now running separate collection schemes by using compostable liners, mainly made of bioplastics. Food waste is collected both at large producers (i.e. the Ho.Re.Ca. sector) and at households, including also families living in high-rise buildings and flats. In some cities and areas the density of inhabitants, served be separate collections, exceeding 7000 persons/sqkm.
