The model that has been maintained since its first edition is in the form of lectures and panels, interspersed with intervals —"coffee and prose" — and time left at the end for questioning by the public to the speakers; scientific work presented both orally and on posters; case presentation and sustainable showcase. From different aspects, all these activities address the common theme of solid waste and the environment.

The speakers and guests of the event are a selected group of academic and scientific authorities in their respective areas, as well as entrepreneurs and representatives of companies with outstanding activity in the area of solid waste.
