SmartGov: Social Media Campaign for the Improvement of Mobility and Cleaning Services of the Municipality of Limassol

Our city centre and Anexertisias street are facing a major problem of waste production and collection. Waste, together with the activities of our waste collection vehicles, reduce the liveability and walkability of the pedestrian areas, as well as the attractive public spaces in our city centre. During summer, the problem worsens. Consequently, this calls for appropriate actions and solutions.

With the European-funded research project SmartGov, the Municipality of Limassol aims to provide a much-improved waste collection service to help residents, shop owners and restaurant owners in our city centre with the disposal and collection of their waste, and thus allow our fellow citizens to enjoy a cleaner city. We are looking for effective and feasible local strategies that work well at city-level, but also at a micro-level in streets and neighbourhoods. For example, we are considering potentially altering the routes of the waste collection vehicles for their better navigation.

The SmartGov project is co-funded by the Research Promotion Foundation under the ERA-NET Cofund Smart Cities and Communities (ENSCC) call of the JPI-URBAN EUROPE programme. The Cypriot consortium consists of the Cyprus University of Technology, Interfusion Services Ltd and the Municipality of Limassol.
