City of Nijmegen has sustainability high priority. We see our procurement and tendering processes as opportunities to give sustainability a boost. Currently we are preparing a contract for the collection and processing of industrial waste for our own. It involves the service premises waste and accommodations (community centers, sports centers). We would like to hear from the market and our ambitions are feasible and how. There are parties who are willing to pay for our waste or our raw materials? Why or why not? Or under what conditions or not? What opportunities and risks they see? What methods are there to gather information from accommodation to separate the waste at source, so that the percentage of waste is nil as possible? And that we as a church this reduces the burden as much as possible? And what (other) ideas they have to become more sustainable waste collection and disposal?
This includes elements such as promoting waste separation, communications / awareness among users, logistics and mobility and energy efficiency.
