Visits are a daily activity at LIPOR.

In the several Tours we explain the paths taken by waste, from the moment it is disposed of in the corresponding infrastructures until their passage through Lipor's facilities, where it is treated and sent to its proper destination.

(on weekdays; on weekends and holidays, appropriate programmes are required) We accept visits from Groups, Schools, Associations, Institutions or Companies. Groups should be composed of a minimum of 10 people and visits should be schedule at least 5 days in advance, the confirmation depends on whether the requested date and time are available.
