Tournai makes the Click and adopts this innovative project that gives pride of place to public cleanliness
Tournai is to be the first city in Hainaut to join the Click participatory project as part of the expansion of its public cleanliness plan. The Click rewards the good behaviour of members of the public as regards waste and packaging used out of home with the aim of combating litter. Through this project, all the waste collected in the city centre will be pre-sorted, which makes it possible to extract - and thus recycle - the PMD.
With more than 500 garbage cans on its territory, Tournai is one of the most committed Walloon municipalities in the fight against litter.
The required infrastructure has been installed: bins bearing a pink sticker make the project visible in the street. In addition, all the public bins undergo pre-sorting in order to separate the recyclable materials from the residual waste. Pre-sorted PMD waste then follows its usual route in the recycling chain.
The Click has already proved itself as there 39,000 convinced users who have clicked no fewer than 215,000 times, each time putting waste in the right bin. People have really caught on, adopting the right reflexes!
