quantitative amount of waste collected for recycling. Since December 2018, this amount has reached 570 tons.
The extension started with the delivery of the campaign activation leaflets and of a letter from de municipality president, followed by the free distribution of container equipment for dedicated collection of the various fractions (paper/ cardboard, plastic/ metal, glass, organic and mixed waste) to each of the covered households. There was also an awareness-raising action, which introduced and called for correct recycling, informing about the frequency of collection, delivery procedures, as well as the advantages of this new system, namely the support of social causes.

The new selective door-to-door collection system started in the municipality of Vila do Conde
in December 2018 with the aim of increasing the amount of waste collected. The project's success resulted in the current expansion and the need to cover more circuits and
new households.

With the motto "Recycling is giving+”, the action was based on a positive approach through door-to-door proactive contact presenting individual (functional and financial) and social benefits of joining this specific urban waste collection system: proximity, convenience, sustainability and solidarity, since the value of the recyclable waste delivered will revert to the
Volunteer Firefighters from Vila do Conde.
