Sardinia managed to achieve a dramatic improvement in its waste management performance becoming one of the best performing islands in the Mediterranean. Focusing on bio-waste separate collection and door-to-door collection, the island reached 60% separate collection in 2016 proving that tourist destinations can achieve high waste management targets.
