There are 7 (seven) EGF Concessionaires that are part of the list of entities that will receive quality stamps in urban waste management for the year 2017, awarded by ERSAR (Water and Waste Services Regulatory Authority).


The distinction will be attributed to management entities that provide urban waste management services and the stamps will be delivered at the 12th National Waste Forum on April 19, and this list includes Ersuc, Resiestrela, Resinorte, Resulima, Valorlis, Valorminho and Valorsul.


These prizes are also awarded to five (5) management entities: Association of Municipalities of Alentejo Central, GESAMB, LIPOR, INOVA and the Municipality of Abrantes. The selection of the distinguished entities was done according to the regulation "Awards and Stamps of the Water and Waste Services, Data for 2016".


Management entities that have been awarded a quality stamp will be given a certificate and the right to use the image of the stamp in the context of their institutional communication, namely on the website and advertising. The ceremony of delivery of the stamps will take place on April 19, during the 12th National Waste Forum in Lisbon.


With this initiative, it is evident the existence of a rigorous system of evaluation of the services provided to consumers, who come to know the entities that provide the best service in different areas. It is also intended to sensitize management entities to quality issues in the design, implementation, management and operation of systems.


This ERSAR initiative is carried out in partnership with the Água & Ambiente Newspaper. Also participating in the Jury are several representatives of the sector, such as the Portuguese Water Distribution and Drainage Association (APDA), the Portuguese Association of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering (APESB), the Portuguese Association of Water Resources (APRH), ESGRA - Association for Waste Management, APEMETA - Portuguese Association of Environmental Technology Companies and DECO - Portuguese Association for Consumer Protection.
