PMGRM priorities

The 2009-2016 Metropolitan Programme of Municipal Waste Management has four key objectives based on priorities established by the Framework Directive on waste from 2008:
  1. Maintaining or reducing waste generation through prevention actions.
  2. Complementing and optimising facilities with the aim of recycling over 50% of general waste, between waste selection made by citizens and what is got from the treatment plant.
  3. Ensuring the treatment of 100 % of all fractions of municipal waste or similar, including the remainder fraction. The treatment of such fraction is essential to get usable materials or to produce energy.
  4. Ensuring a stable management of waste by giving priority to the energetic value above disposal.Mantenir o reduir la generació de residus mitjançant accions de prevenció.
