Organic waste

By separating organic waste from general waste, you will reduce the production of waste in around 40%. With a simple gesture, organic waste can be reused as compost and reintegrated in the environment. 

What can I separate?
Food waste, fruits and vegetables, bread, cakes, egg shells, coffee, tea bags and even napkins are considered “organic waste”.

Green Organic Waste
Coming from gardens, small pruning and leaf cleaning, green organic waste must be separated and may be delivered at the ecocentre or through scheduling.

Bins and Collection
Guimarães City Hall gives individual bins to every household in the Municipality. The organic waste collection is carried out by Vitrus Ambiente through the Payt system, door-to-door or in street collectors.
