Who we are

The Association of Catalan Towns for door to door selective waste collection is an association without spirit of profit and independent, that it has as a main goal to promote the model of selective waste collection named "Door to door".

The year 2000 the municipalities of Tiana, Tona, Riudecanyes and Mancomunitat la Plana were the first that implanted a door to door selective waste collection system in Catalonia. Since then, this number has kept on being increased until arrives to the more than 200 municipalities nowadays.

With the conviction of the benefits of this system, these first local entities joined to set up the Association in year 2002.


All those local or local entities that having implanted a collection system in the expressed terms are members of law, they have been accepted in the Association.
