Barcelona has an extensive municipal service for the daily collection of household and commercial waste to provide waste collection to citizens and ensure a clean and healthy public space.
This service is carried out through street containers, door to door bags collection service, pneumatic collection boxes and bins for collection in shops. Waste which cannot be placed in conventional containers is delivered to Green Dots. Citizens also have special services regarding waste collection, such as old furniture and clothes, dead animals, debris bags gardening waste, fibrocement or asbestos.
In the context of public awareness campaigns, the City Council is promoting actions and tools to accompany the citizens in improving household waste collection through educational activities and training which are addressed at the public and groups from the city.
