6.1 What are the requirements for me to take part in the home composting intervention?

The main requirement is that you should be resident of the pilot areas of the WASP Tool project (i.e. the Municipality of Chania, Greece; The Municipality of Heraklion, Greece; The Municipality of Paralimni Cyprus). In this case, you should register to participate at the Local Authorities participating in the project: DEDISA (www.dedisa.gr) if you are a resident of Chania, ESDAK (www.esdak.gr) if you are a resident of Heraklio, and in the Municipality Paralimni (www.paralimni.org.cy) if you are a resident of Paralimni.
If you are not resident of  a pilot area, you can start home composting by constructing a do-it-yourself compost bin. Information can be found on the project Composting Guide (available in Greek in the website’s path Home- Waste Prevention Activities - Home composting). In this manual and in the brochure of the project, you will find additional tips on your first steps on home composting, as well as atroubleshooting section.
Deadline for registration to home composting intervention: June 2013.
