Objectives and results of the action The ultimate goal of the action is to institute direct incentives to citizens according to their contribution to waste separate selection at source. Thus, action plans will be developed in each partner area based on a common methodology, defining the process of separate selection and collection, the way of citizens participation, the type of benefits and the way these will be returned to citizens.

Action plans will be pilot implemented to evaluate and to measure the results and incorporate them to local strategies for an effective solid waste management.

A 20% increase of recycle percentage and enhancement of environmental awareness are expected. The main outputs are the local action plans and practices based on "Benefit As You Save" (BAS) systems and a networking platform firstly among the partner areas, with the view to be enlarged with new stakeholders since BAS practices will meet widely acceptance.
