The collection indicates a system of waste collection that includes a first differentiating by type by citizens, diversifying from the collection totally indiscriminate.
The goal is the separation of waste in such a way as to redirect each type of waste towards the respective more suitable disposal or recovery treatment ranging from storage in landfills or incineration/WTE for the residual undifferentiated, composting for organic and recycling for differentiated itself (paper, glass, cans, plastic).
For all the above mentioned waste sorting is preparatory to the correct and most advanced waste management constitutes the first phase of the process.

The collection was set implicitly to the entire territory of the EEC Directive 75/442 of 1975, now replaced by more recent directives, which in art. 3 required him to promote waste reduction, recovery and reuse and art. 7 the "rationalization" of the collection, sorting and treatment.

Ecological problems and environmental defense make it more difficult to find traditional landfills, areas in which enter materials of all kinds, unsorted, polluting or sometimes more often useful as a source of raw materials. Recycling of waste, in addition to solving the problem of landfills, enables significant savings in energy and raw materials. Even the landfilling of damp is a waste, since it can be used to produce compost.

The average composition of waste is difficult to establish as it varies with the area, wealth and culture of the citizen, as well as with industrial production.

Ultimate goal of national and regional rules on waste is to minimize the amount of non-recyclable waste in landfills or incinerators to treat by wearing or waste-to-energy plants, and at the same time, recover, through waste recycling, re-usable raw materials become source of wealth.

Are present in Italy and Tuscany many companies involved in the design, manufacture and Assembly of baskets and bins for recycling.

The colors of the bins separate waste collection

Until recently there was not a standardization of color for recycling, while in 2013 was issued to uni 840-1:2013 that addresses the issue of color coding in the trash. The standard specifies the dimensions and the design requirements of the containers as follows:

color                                           waste                                                treatment

green                                          glass                                                recyclable

yellow                  newspapers, magazines, cardboard                      Recyclable

blue                           plastic packaging and metals                            Recyclable

Brown                                  organic waste                                         Recyclable

Red                                    municipal waste                                    Non-recyclable

The municipality of Pontassieve and AER uses for the collection of mixed waste (MSW) electronics keys; the system involves placing a cap on the road, with the opening of the same red box (for) made possible only with the  electronics key that have been equipped with every user.
