About Florence

The municipality of Florence is moving towards a circular city system, focusing on one of the main challenging sectors: waste management. The new plan “Firenze Circular City” aims at organizing, in an innovative way, the bestowal and collection of urban waste. The Municipality, through a project which started in October 2020 and will be completed within two years, is organising the introduction of a door-to-door garbage collection in low urbanized areas and in the rest of the city the placement of smart bins that can be opened only with an identification key. In addition, The “Firenze Plastic Free” plan, approved in 2019 as part of the “Firenze City Circular” general plan, aims to reduce single-use plastics through more information and awareness of more virtuous practices and lifestyles.
