This kind of systematic inspection helps to improve the reduction of household waste. The proper use of the compost bins depends not only on the monitoring program but on the willingness of the citizens to commit to this type of waste management. The results from the Municipality of Nea Smyrni justify the effort of its citizens and set an example to urge other municipalities to adopt “green” waste management techniques.
