Action leader(s)

E.M. Sanitation Córdoba


The City of Córdoba implemented a series of waste deposit solutions aimed at addressing the problem of the visual impact of waste management in heritage city centres. Waste collection points, underground containers and container covers were integrated in the urban centre succeeding in reconciling the need to implement separate collection with environmental aesthetics and urban hygiene.
