Waste Disposal Sites
Find the nearest place to deposit their waste.
The Ecofone project was created on June 2000 and consists of a free door-to-door selective collection service for recyclable waste (paper/cardboard, glass, plastic, metal and Tetra Pack packages). Residents of the city of Porto can use a toll-free number – 800 200 345 – to request the service, which is specially intended for the commercial, services and catering sectors.
The recyclable materials are collected by properly identified teams in commercial vehicles, which allow a good mobility around Porto.
In order to ensure Ecofone's efficiency, the date and time for collection are always previously agreed with the person who requests the service, according to its availability, as well as the minimum amount of material to collect (never less than 10 kg).
This service is intended to promote the separation of recyclable material, in order to increase the amount of materials delivered in the Sorting Plant for recycling.
The personal telephone service is available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., from Monday to Friday. Calls outside these periods are recorded. Materials are collected from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., from Monday to Friday, and from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
