“Recycle More, Pay Less” – Innovative National Project uses Future Compta Technology to implement a fairer waste collection tariff!
The Recycle More, Pay Less project is a new model, pioneering in Portugal and Europe, with a tariff indexed to the production of waste that is arriving in Maia.
This project implemented with support in Bee2Waste and all the instrumentation installed in the vehicles and in more than 150,000 containers, will allow to calculate the Tariff for the Urban Waste Management Service (TSGRU) in function of the volume of undifferentiated garbage collected, leaving such tariff to be related to water consumption. Thus, the main objective of this model is to make it possible for residents of Maia to pay only for waste that they do not recycle.
The project involves the following entities: MAIAMBIENTE, CÂMARA MUNICIPAL DA MAIA, LIPOR and SPV.
This innovative project, in national terms, is expected to collect larger recyclable materials and reduce waste sent to landfill or incineration.
