Green Waste

In our region biowaste (green and food waste) represents around 40% of the total waste produced while green waste represents around 13.8% of the mixed waste.
The Selective Collection of Green Waste Project aims to reduce the presence of this fraction in the mixed waste containers, as well as contribute to the European goals of biodegradable waste preparation for re-use and recycling. The selective collection of green waste enables citizens to recycle this fraction of waste produced in their gardens. This project allows the specific and free collection by the municipality.

After collection the green waste is brought to LIPOR and through a composting process in our Organic Recovery Plant transformed into a high-quality natural fertilizer - NUTRIMAIS.

In a joint effort of LIPOR and its associated municipalities, we launched an Awareness and Communication Campaign, to promote a better green waste management and collection.

Side-by-side with the implementation of the new collection scheme, we developed a set of communication tools to present this service to citizens and call for their cooperation.

Through advertisement on public transport, radio stations, local and regional newspapers we reached the community where this project was implemented. We also promoted a urban sketch about composting to take this awareness even further.


In order to answer questions about how, when and where to deliver your green waste for collection, we took an Awareness Teams to the streets of the eight municipalities, to explain how to sort and help to implement and monitor the collection service.

As the project moves forward, we continue our communication with every one sharing the results of collected materials and the quantities of green waste that arrived at LIPOR.

The main goal is that people can be aware of the positive impact they are having on the environment, through a small gesture and the use of the collection service, encouraging them to continue to participate in the recycling process.
