Home Composting Project

We return to Earth what it gave us.
In partnership with our Associated Municipalities, we've promoted Terra à Terra (Give it Back to Earth) project, where we encourage the reduction of organic waste in houses, buildings and institutions in our area of operation, free of charge for all participants.

With this project, we aim to encourage the prevention of organic waste, treating it locally and thus reducing the process's environmental impact and improving the quality of life for the population.

We predict that the home composting process will allow us:

This project is developed by LIPOR in cooperation with the eight Associated Municipalities, and there are no costs for participants.
Compost bins per Municipality*:

MAIA - 2651
PORTO - 2225
VALONGO - 1765

TOTAL - 15460

* as of March 2020
