This project was funded by the Department of Planning and Sustainability of the Generalitat of Catalonia and had the Catalan Association of Municipalities for Door-to-Door Separate Collection and Fundació ENT as partners.

The objectives of the project were:

  • To achieve a higher level of information about door-to-door separate collection and its effects on waste prevention.
  • To publicize the door-to-door separate collection model, in view of its possible adoption by municipalities.
  • To reduce waste generation and to increase separate collection in municipalities implementing door-to-door collection.
