The production of waste is basically stable, which however, in large part sees the use of municipal waste collection services for different types of waste (paper, glass, tin cans).
In Italy, due to the halt in disposing of PCs to meet the obligations resulting from the payment investigations on behalf of or for persons sanctioned or embargoed by the U.S. Government, the disposal of office machines has obviously been reduced. On the other hand, the quota of hazardous waste disposal from office equipment increased, due both to the systematic renewal of corporate equipment, as well as activities related to the World Environment Day (as described later in this section).
Abroad, the containment can be attributed to greater improvements and awareness regarding monitoring methods as well as specific activities for handling waste better.
In particular, initiatives for the disposal of electronic waste were implemented, including the agreement signed between CIB Bank and the Hungarian Maltese Charity Service, which will combine the environmental objective with the possibility of creating jobs and opportunities in a disadvantaged area of the country. Finally, we should like to point out Privredna Banka Zagreb’s initiative which, in its Regulations for Health at Work, adopted in July 2009, included instructions on the treatment of waste such as paper, hazardous waste and technological materials.
