Taranto Municipality has awarded PMF the new urban waste management planning for the city.
Taranto, with a population of more than 200,000 residents, is one of the most challenging cities in southern Italy due to its complexity and mix between residential and industrial areas. Besides hosting an important commercial and military port, Taranto is the seat of ILVA factory, the largest European steel and iron foundry.
PMF will design the complete overhaul of household and commercial solid waste collection, treatment and disposal, giving large emphasis to refuse recycling through proper segregation at source and efficient downstream recycling.
Door-to-door system full implementation over the whole territory, combined with cutting-edge technology collection systems (ECP – Engineered Collection points) strategically located in the city will be the key answers to address the issues posed by the city.
