About 525 municipalities in Italy, and three million Italians, have been classed as "garbage-free" in a recent report by green group Legambiente which praises those parts of the country that are managing to reduce non-recyclable waste to a minimum.

The north of the country is leading the way, with 413 municipalities, or 79% of the total. The south follows with 87 and then the centre of the country with 25. Veneto tops the list of regions, with 35% of the "garbage free" municipalities, followed by Friuli Venezia Giulia (29%), Trentino-Alto Adige (17%) and Campania (9%).
