Mobile domestic recycling drop-off centres

The mobile domestic recycling drop-off centre is a vehicle adapted to provide a waste separation service. It stops in different neighbourhoods and/or towns in the Barcelona Metropolitan Area according to a set itinerary.

The lorry has a specially adapted trailer with different compartments for the collection of ordinary waste (textiles, packaging, etc.), bulk materials and special items.

In places with a fixed domestic recycling drop-off centre, the mobile centre supports and improves access for residents. In places without a fixed centre, the mobile centre provides residents with the services of a permanent recycling centre. All mobile domestic recycling drop-off centres are affiliated to a permanent recycling centre where the waste is delivered.

The advantage of a mobile recycling centre is that it can provide service to more than one municipality and thus reduce costs.
