Since December 2022, the Collectivity has gradually installed 330 street bins allowing the selective sorting of household waste (waste left by tourists and passers-by).

The selective collection of baskets will be fully operational from July 2023. A visual is being placed on top of the baskets to guide the user in sorting actions.


Installation of 15 new places for green waste and bulky items

In addition to the Galisbay waste collection centre, open free of charge to individuals from Monday to Saturday, and in order to offer the population a reinforced local service, the Collectivity has programmed the installation of 15 new voluntary drop-off points for green waste. and bulky items, throughout the territory.

These voluntary drop-off points will be operational from September 2023.
