Waste disposal

During the assembly and dismantling phases, it is the obligation of the outfitting companies to remove their waste daily, removing it from the exhibition area independently or appointing its own supplier, who transports it to recovery or disposal plants, according to current legislation. Therefore, during these periods, ecological areas or bins that can be purchased directly from Fiera Milano are not available. With reference to the Technical Regulations, it is forbidden for fitters to leave any kind of waste, both in the assigned space and in the internal and external common areas (lanes, roads, etc.). This obligation is extended to all waste materials and waste materials from assembly and dismantling work (packaging, materials used such as walls, false ceilings, floor coverings, etc.). In the event of waste being abandoned in the pavilions or inside the Exhibition Centre, Fiera Milano will apply a penalty of up to € 5,000.00 (five thousand/00), without prejudice to compensation for greater damages, also reserving the right to remove the responsible staff from the district and to proceed legally.

For the management of their waste, fitters can contact the companies authorized to manage waste, registered in the National Register of Environmental Managers, which can be consulted at Albo Nazionale Gestori Ambientali. For reasons of knowledge of the district and of the exhibition activities, for the management of waste during the assembly and dismantling phases, we would like to point out the following company, which has been a supplier of Fiera Milano for waste management in recent years, which also has an office inside the Service Center at room n.28 and is reported in the Fiera Milano Exhibitor Services.: 

AMI SERVICE S.R.L. Centro Servizi del Quartiere Fieristico, SS 33 del Sempione n. 28 – Rho (MI) Via Traiano Marco Ulpio, 70 - 20149 Milano (MI) -Autorizzazione numero MI/054349 - +39 347.2633923 -;

In any case, the appointed company can be easily accredited and it is possible to activate the service of housing any containers/containers for the collection and transport of waste. During event days, there are specially equipped areas outside the pavilions dedicated to the separate collection of waste (separate separation rules attached). It is only possible to deposit urban waste: paper, cardboard, plastic, organic fraction and glass-cans, which Fiera Milano sends to the public collection circuit of the Municipality of Rho. The floor plan will be sent to you 1 month in advance, depending on when the active refreshment areas for the event are defined.
