The Municipality of Chalandri is another Local Government body who chooses the GET WASTE MANAGEMENT SOLUTION for the Management of the Cleaning Data, provided by GET within our portfolio developed for the Smart City. In fact, in this case, the specific solution is provided in combination with the vertical application for Participatory Planning GET PUBLIC PARTICIPATION.
One of the aspects that emerges internationally as crucial for the correct design and the most effective implementation of policies related to waste management, recycling and source sorting, as well as co-financed business programs, is the degree of participation of citizens and stakeholders. It is commonplace that participation in the design and implementation of programs and policies at every spatial scale as well as the democratic and inclusive involvement of citizens in every field of public policy is one of the central goals for the societies of the future.
The priority tools of the Cleaning Department of the Municipality of Chalandri, in order to achieve a high degree of participation of citizens and stakeholders are:
- The best internal organization of information regarding cleanliness through the geospatial dimension of the assets that concern it (e.g. bins, vehicles, collection routes)
- Achieving a common operational picture in terms of cleanliness data focusing on the real situation in almost real time in terms of collection and the condition of the bins
- The continuous briefing of the citizens regarding the implementation of the Local Decentralized Waste Management Plan (TSD) of the Municipality of Chalandri, the actions and the measurable results of the Directorate,
- Awareness and activation of groups and individuals especially for the expansion of the coffee bucket program
- Awareness and activation through creative participatory actions on the issues of recycling, the circular economy
- Informing and exploring the possibility of forming an energy community.
This infrastructure will be implemented through the utilization of the existing SDI of the Municipality, which has been developed using free open-source software (FOSS). The new applications that are going to be developed will also be open source, following the standards and the rules of interoperability. The project is structured in 3 Phases and has a total implementation period of 10 Months.
