As you know, since 1 November the selective collection of organic waste has been rolled out to five new districts in the city and will be extended further to the rest of the districts in Madrid (except the Centro district, scheduled for the end of 2020) before the end of the year.


As was the case last year, the introduction of this system will be supported by an ambitious information and awareness campaign lasting eight months, which starts in mid-November.


This campaign is again aimed at homes, concierges of buildings and homeowner associations, shopkeepers, the educational community, municipal personnel and associations. During this time, in addition to providing information on the type of waste to be disposed of in the brown lidded bins, Madrid City Council seeks to answer any questions the public may have and hear their suggestions about this new separation system and municipal waste management in general.


For this reason, if you live in Fuencarral-El Pardo, Retiro, Moratalaz, Carabanchel or Usera, one of these days you may see some of the 16 environmental educators who are informing shopkeepers and concierges in these areas about the new separation system or putting up information posters at the entrances to residential buildings.


One of our educators may also approach you to conduct an anonymous survey and get your opinion first-hand, together with the thoughts of other residents about this new system.


In addition to our team of educators to offer you the necessary information, over the coming weeks a personalized letter will be sent to the residents living in these districts together with an information leaflet and fridge magnet.


And in this campaign, we will again hold information sessions open to the general public, to associations and to groups, with information booths set up at different locations around these 8 districts together with street shows. You can find the exact places and times of all the acts scheduled here.


And to conclude, once this new collection system is in operation in the districts of Barajas, Chamartín and Salamanca in December, we’ll start our educational activities for schools in the eight districts.


As you can see … We’ve planned many different activities!
