Recycling--Do your part
In Italy, recycling is required by law and not complying may result in fines. Additionally, bringing waste on base for disposal is against the law.
Every community in the local area has an ecological platform or community dump. The rules vary by community, but they exist to help dispose of bulk items. These ecological platforms won't allow unsorted trash to be dropped off. Plan ahead to get rid of smaller items in an incremental and systematic manner.
For more information or questions, contact the Community Recycling Liaison, Giovanna Coppola, at DSN 632-2511.
Leaving Aviano? Need to dispose of big or bulky items?

There are many things to do on your PCS out of Aviano. Discarding unwanted items during the “PCS Purge” can be a simple process if done early and correctly. During your time in Italy you collect new things, but you also outgrown others. Some things can be sold or donated, but everything that needs to be thrown out must be done correctly. Every community in the local area has an Ecological Platform, the Italian equivalent of the city dump. The rules for use vary by community, but they do exist and you need to use them for bulky items. They don’t allow you to drop off bags of unsorted trash. You can get rid of smaller excess items in an incremental/systematic manner through your normal “mixed waste” trash can. If you have a lot to get rid of this may take months. If you wait until the last week, you can expect to have to pay for excess waste removal. Remember, you cannot bring your waste to base. Likewise, if you dump your trash off base you are breaking the law and will be fined. Plan ahead for a smooth PCS. Don’t wait until you have orders to do the “PCS Purge” - make it a seasonal habit.
