Solution: Compost training for families. Owner: Centre Morbihan Communauté. Strategy: Prevention; reuse.
Selected families can sign up to the programme for six months. They join professionals to set up compost bins in their own gardens. They are also trained to use green waste locally.
This training reduces the need for frequent local waste collection. It also minimises household visits to the local recycling centre.

Potential circular economy impact
Composting turns organic waste into useful materials. It can also lower greenhouse gas emissions and divert waste from landfill or incineration. The compost created benefits garden soil.
By using waste in their garden, families reduce the number of visits to the recycling centre. This reduces fuel consumption and associated emissions.
