ONLY GLASS TO THE GREEN BIN

Spanish people separate waste very well. Did you know that only 2% of unsuitable materials are recorded? That is, materials that should not be in the bin: plastic bags, light packaging, dishes and tableware, etc.

By making green bins monomaterial and, as a result, only including glass packaging, we ensure a high quality of recycling. If you have any questions, we explain it all in the following videos!

Can everything go in the green bin?

WE ARE DEBUNKING THIS FALSE MYTH

Ignore what you've heard and been told. NOT everything goes in the green bin, only glass packaging. Otherwise, we will be hindering the manufacture of glass packaging. Look!

Crystal glass
is not glass

AS CLEAR AS THAT!

Glass and crystal glass, neither together nor up in arms! Both materials have a different composition, so they must be deposited in different bins. We tell you all about it here!
