Pilot project in collaboration with Fost Plus encourages sorting outside the home.
The municipal council of De Haan and Fost Plus have joined forces in an ambitious project to keep the town tidy. The Click encourages residents, second-home owners and tourists to throw their waste in the appropriate bins when they are outdoors. An innovative web application has been developed for the purpose. For every packaging that you pick up or throw in the correct bin, you can scan a code with your smartphone to save “Circular UCoins” which can be used for purchases at local merchants. De Haan seeks in this way to be a model town on the Flemish coast as regards public cleanliness and recycling of packaging.
