The aim of the project on the title subject is to improve the separationof wastes from businesses, to improve the waste collecting process (less transportation and use of space) and minimal, equal costs for the waste producers. In seven shopping centres (more than 1000 small businesses) the present waste separating processes and logistic efforts are mapped. For each shopping centre requirements are formulated for an optimized model of waste collection. Based on the model possible savings have been calculated. The improved separation and calculated savings were verified in a practical experiment. Also, for each fraction of the collected wastes it has been studied what the optimal process is, where the fractions can be processed and what the present tariffs for processing are. 32 refs.
