Ecovidrio, the non-profit entity in charge of managing the recycling of glass container waste in Spain, in collaboration with the Jumilla City Council, has started a campaign to promote glass recycling in the municipality's hospitality sector.
In a first phase, surveys and interviews will be carried out with all the hospitality establishments of Jumilla to know first-hand what their needs are and thus be able to adapt existing resources.In addition, Ecovidrio will offer detailed information to locals on how to recycle correctly and the social and economic advantages of recycling glass containers.
Subsequently, small buckets or buckets with wheels will be delivered to all the hoteliers that adhere to this initiative, to separate and collect the glass generated in their establishments.In addition, new adapted containers will be placed near each establishment, so that hospitality staff can deposit glass container waste more comfortably.
According to the latest data available for 2019, the citizens of Jumilla recycled a total of 467,002 kg of glass containers.This means that each inhabitant recycled an average of about 18.2 kg of glass per year.Regarding the containerization rate, the town has a total of 161 containers installed, so there is one container for every 159 inhabitants.
