High levels of selective collection

Data from Catalunya

High levels of selective collection are a good indicator of the commitment and good practices regarding waste carried out in a municipality. The higher the percentage of selective collection, the greater the amount of waste that can potentially be recovered and recycled, thus contributing to the principles of the circular economy and reducing the environmental impact associated with the generation and treatment of waste.

Evolution of the number of population in Catalonia according to the percentage of selective collection in their municipality, and evolution of the number of municipalities with a percentage of selective collection higher than 60%
