WHAT IS AN ECOEVENT?
An EcoEvent is a one-off initiative, certified by each EGF concessionaire, which takes place in a predefined space, which has a limited duration and is an example of adopting appropriate environmental measures that promote sustainability concepts. The EcoEventos are supported with an appropriate selective collection service adapted to their size, local awareness and economic benefits associated with the quantity of containers separated correctly.
