The ecocenters will run around the city, staying three days in each strategic point.
Plastic, paper, and glass are already common elements in our day to day recycling. Now, when it comes to spray cans, a pot, or a light bulb, questions about which ecoponto is the right one can start to arise.
Thinking about this difficulty, the Lisbon City Hall has created three special mobile ecopoints, or “ecocenters”, as they are called, which will run around the city so that people can deposit those more complex residues. This is the case of coffee capsules, CDs and DVDs, packaging with remains of solvent and paint products, spray cans, ink cartridges and toners, normal and tubular lamps, small household appliances, cork stoppers, cutlery, pots and pans.
Each Ecocenter will be at each location three days a month, according to the fixed schedule that you can see here.
The waste collected in the mobile ecocenters is then deposited in the containers of the Lisbon City Hall’s removal support parks until it is forwarded for reuse and recycling, through a licensed operator.
When these ecocenters are not nearby, you can always check here to see how best to dispose of some of this waste.
