CoReVe is the non-profit Consortium that aims to achieve the goals of recycling and recovery of glass packaging waste produced in Italy. It has been established on 23rd October 1997 by the main glass companies in compliance with the Legislative Decree 22/97 to organize the recovery of the glass waste which come from the separate collection, in order to set up the guidelines for the prevention activities and to ensure the recycling of recovered glass. In particular CoReVe deals with information about recycling and glass recovery issues which are useful for citizens and it organizes the specific prevention plan with the guidelines to reach the recycling goals.
The Consortium considers the communication activities for citizens extremely important, as citizens are the protagonists of the waste separate collection. According to this concept, the ideation of the special prize wants to create another occasion for the recycling awareness.
The works’ originality and effect will be important as they have to represent the glass features, a material that is the circular economy’s perfect representation.
