The project addressed the shortcomings of the household waste treatment practices in Csömör village. In order to promote public awareness on the importance of household composting as well as to foster its introduction a multi-component campaign was carried out on the local level by the means of regularly publishing relevant information in the local newspaper, participation at local festivals with an info desk, publishing 5 booklets on different composting techniques and posting information posters in the public spaces. The promoter was running a phone information line by which more than 200 families were reached, out of which 52 were supported not only with information but also with composting frames. Composting was introduced to the local educational institutions (one primary school and 2 kindergartens), and a community garden was set up for demonstration purposes. As an ultimate result the project promoter association has managed to set up a good cooperation both with the local municipality as well as the community, and to make composting more widespread that adds to the overall level of local sustainability.
