The Catalan Door-to-Door Municipal Association has released a new version of the door-to-door separate collection manual, in which the Catalan door-to-door separate collection experts explained how to implement a door-to-door separate collection collection system:

– Can improve the quality of recycled materials,

– The disposal cost can be reduced by significantly reducing the residual part of the waste.
