BOOSTING WASTE SORTING TO CUT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

KiSS Mugello, in 2013 the first programme of its kind at world level, aims to raise awareness of the importance of environmental and social sustainability issues within big sport events. The programme mainly focuses on encouraging and guiding fans and spectators attending big sport events to properly carry out separate waste collection, according to circular economy teachings.
At Mugello Circuit’s gates, about 20,000 recycling kits will be distributed, containing coloured bags for separate waste collection together with information flyers (printed with sustainable ink on 100% recycled paper). Across the circuit a number of recycling points will be organized for the collection of organic waste, glass, plastic, metals, tetrapak, polystyrene, paper and cardboard, used batteries.

Thanks to the leading Italian National Consortia (non profit) for the recovery and recycling of packaging, the separate collection carried out by spectators and fans over the race week-end will be the basis of a fundraising initiative in favour of the Meyer Foundation of Florence, a well-known Italian charity operating in the field of child care.

COLLECTION OF FOOD SURPLUS, TO BE DONATED TO NON PROFITS
The second main field of action of KiSS Mugello, once again inspired by circular economy principles (turning waste into resources), is the fight against food waste, a fundamental issue also in the perspective of the Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030)
adopted by the United Nations. In order to raise awareness around this issue, on Saturday, June 3rd in the afternoon, the collection of food surplus will be carried out with Mugello Circuit, QUI Foundation and Emporio della Solidarietà (non profits), and the City of Scarperia and San Piero, assisted by KiSS Mugello Crew and employee volunteering programme run by Omal S.p.A. It will consist in collecting the food surplus from hospitality, to reduce food waste: on Saturday morning, volunteers wearing “KiSS Mugello” branded uniforms (bearing the writing “We collect and donate food surplus”) will distribute the food containers (fully biodegradable and compostable) to be picked up on Saturday afternoon. The collected food surplus will be donated to local non profit organizations, whose guests will have the chance to consume it on Saturday evening.

KiSS Mugello is promoted by Mugello Circuit, FMI (Italian Motorcycling Federation) and FIM (International Motorcycling Federation), Dorna (the Spanish company holding the rights for the World Motorcycling Championship) and IRTA (The International Road Racing Teams Association).
