Mobile waste collection points in Mallorca

Action leader(s)

Palma City Council

Summary

This practice was developed as an alternative to conventional waste bins in those areas where there is not enough space to place them and where these must be well-integrated due to the environment where they are located. The municipality of Palma implemented mobile collection points, a system thanks to which the bins can be removed from the street after the collection hours and put back in place on a daily basis.
