Citizens will pay according to the waste they produce

The “International Waste Management Seminar”, held this Thursday at Sanjotec, discussed the way waste is treated at home. The application of the “PAYT” system allows you to charge only what is not recycled.

The “PAYT” (Pay-As-You-Throw) system consists of collecting waste that is wasted.

The municipality of S. João da Madeira is implementing the “door to door” waste collection system. In Portugal, only about 16% of the waste produced is recycled.
