How to separate my waste?

 

At the moment, only organic waste is collected selectively in hotels. Until the fifth container is installed, residents of Calvià must dispose of organic waste to the rejection container or make their own garden compost

How to separate my waste?

The best waste is the one we don't generate. In Calvià, the production of waste is growing, and for this reason it is important to be aware of the need to consume with the least possible waste result:

  • Avoid using plastic bags to go shopping.
  • Avoid using plates, cups and plastic cutlery.
  • Buy food in bulk or in reusable containers. Choose the product that uses less packaging.
  • Cardboard wrappers and glass containers are, in general, the least harmful.
  • Family-sized products generate less waste per unit of product.
  • Choose products that are going to have longer duration and that can be repaired in case of breakdown or breakage.
  • If possible, reuse the foil.

Tips to dispose of waste properly

  • Do not throw containers and bottles with food or drink inside.
  • Deposit the folded cardboard.
  • Have a bucket for each type of waste at home (rejection, packaging, cardboard, glass) and do not mix them.
  • Fold and compress the containers and cartons to save space in the cubes.
  • Use an empty bottle or bottle to put the cooking oil once used.
  • If you have a garden, use a composter to make fertilizer with your organic waste.

If you are a Calvià private individual and you want to get rid of furniture, appliances or pruning remains, remember that you can request the collection in front of your house on the phone 971 699 202.
