Under the auspices of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, and with the support of the Turkish Municipalities Association, our congress will take place at Ankara Grand Rixos Hotel on 6th October 2015. The issues that will be discussed include the integrated management of waste in Turkish municipalities, the legal responsibilities of municipalities on the management of waste, the problems faced and suggestions for solutions, as well as the management of municipal waste in Europe, examples of good application and responsibilities, which will be put forward by authorities from the municipalities of London, Paris and Maia. We believe that our congress will attract the attention of and be beneficial to all the participants.

Our congress will end with a ceremony of thanks to all our municipalities with whom we have been in cooperation for a long time in order to establish a sustainable system of recycling.
