The average of separated waste collection across the area served by the Group came out at 60.6%, compared to the national average of 52.5%, a figure that exceeds the objectives set for 2025 by the European Union’s Circular Economy Package.

In line with the directives of the sector and local programmes, the Group has defined in its Business Plan its commitment to achieving a further increase in the percentage of separated waste collection, introducing new home collection services with new exact pricing systems, aiming at an even greater promotion of environmental awareness among citizens, and sending 100% of urban waste collected to be recovered as material or energy.
