ERSUC, EGF's concessionaire in the central region, increased the number of containers for packaging waste in the 36 municipalities in its area of intervention, in order to improve the quality of the service provided to the population.
By the end of the year, 680 new groups ou containers will be installed, resulting in a 17% increase in equipment, making a total of 4,745 containers available for selective deposition throughout the region. All the containers are already georeferenced, which allows the compilation of the necessary information to carry out an appropriate management of the selective collection.
Parallel to this, ERSUC is also investing in the selective collection of waste from the commerce and services sector, and has promoted the "Recycle Trade" awareness campaign in more than 3,000 commercial establishments.
The availability of these resources, integrated in an investment of around 3 million euros financed by the Operational Program Sustainability and Efficiency in the Use of Resources (POSEUR), aims to contribute to the achievement of the recycling targets of PERSU 2020.
The targets set in PERSU 2020 in terms of materials collected and sent for recycling are very ambitious and ERSUC is committed to strengthening the quantity and quality of its services, with which it intends to get closer to the population, with more resources and in a more efficient.
