Wikimania 2016 bids/Esino Lario/Cleaning

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

The number of people using the meeting rooms during Wikimania Esino Lario go beyond the normal use of these spaces. In general the cleaning of public buildings is managed by a cleaning company hired by the city council or by the local associations in charge of the buildings; private buildings (owned by private owners or associations) are directly managed by them. The cleaning of public spaces and the management of the outdoor bins is operated by the staff of the city council. The municipal waste collection is managed by a company and the waste disposal by a landfill in Valmadrera.[1]

To meet the necessities of Wikimania Esino Lario we planned to increase the cleaning of the meeting rooms by hiring a cleaning company. The number of participants to the event is not expected to produce a particularly relevant increase of the municipal waste collection, compared to annual management of the 4'000-6'000 tourists in Esino Lario during July and August. We have also collected a preinvoice for the installation of chemical toilets (and their specific cleaning) in case it happened to be necessary.

We have already contacted the landfill in Valmadrera SILEA to get information regarding the most suitable disposable materials to be used in particular for meals such as plates, glasses, bottles (the possibility of recycling materials depends on the landfill), and how to properly differentiate them and collect them.
