The recycling competition promoted by ACR+ member Government of Navarra has in a reduction of the mixed municipal waste by 5% in the over 180 towns and villages that took part. For two months, weighing of the residual waste fraction was carried out in order to obtain an average number of kilos of waste per inhabitant in each locality and to be able to establish an evolution with the previous data.

As a result, the volume of waste going directly to landfill has been reduced. In addition, there has been a 7% increase in the collection of organic matter and a 3% increase in the collection of packaging. To conclude the competition, the winning localities will receive prizes in the form of street furniture made from recycled waste.
