Condeixa gets to know the composition of their municipal waste

Held throughout the week of 27 to 31 March the first physical characterization campaign for municipal waste in Condeixa-a-Nova.

The objective is to estimate the composition of mixed waste collected by the municipality in various locations around the county.

The campaign took place over five days, examined a number of mixed waste containers, especially those generated by the commercial sector.

This campaign is part of the project LIFE PAYT, a project funded by the European Union, which has as main objective the implementation in the municipality of a PAYT system – “pay only what it produces”.

This campaign will be possible (together with other actions planned throughout the project) to identify the current waste practices and help define a communication strategy in the context of the introduction of PAYT system in the city.
