From canteens in the collection of food, and the municipalities in the first row against the waste
(ANSA) there Are many initiatives put in place by the Municipalities of Italy almost a year from the approval of the law 166/2016 that limits food wastage, and that the promoter of the measure, the hon Pd Maria Chiara Gadda, has wished to illustrate in the course of a press conference at Montecitorio. From canteens in the collection of food, and the municipalities in the first row against the waste. From the recovery of uneaten food in school canteens in the collection of food surplus from supermarkets, up to the initiatives aimed at consumers, such as the “bread waiting”, on the model of the “caffè sospeso”, allows customers to donate a quantity of bread purchased. Have intervened to bring their experiences, their statutory auditors Davide Galimberti (Varese) and Brenda Barnini (Empoli, FI) and councillors Stephen Pellizon (San Stino di Livenza, VE) and Carmen Celi (Power). Municipal administrators have stressed in particular how the possibility of a reduction of up to 20% of the tariff Tari on waste for businesses that donate surplus food has set in motion a virtuous circle in which are inserted ad hoc projects presented by the Municipalities together with voluntary associations. The Municipality of Potenza, in addition to introduce in the menu of school food of the territory, fresh and genuine, which is very appreciated by the students (“The dishes are empty and there are no wastes”, said the councillor Celi), says it will open a door for citizens to reduce waste in the home. The Municipalities of Varese, Empoli, and San Stino di Livenza have recalled their representatives have been among the first to introduce the discount Tari provided for by the law Gadda, which is also an aid to companies in financial difficulty. “The law 166/2016 is an open site, " said the honorable Gadda – Today we are in the most difficult and ambitious, that of knowledge and application on the territory and in the local politics. It is right that the good ideas have visibility, because good practices are to be copied”.
