La Barceloneta

La Barceloneta is one of the five city neighbourhoods with the highest amounts of gross organic waste collected (59.95 kg per resident) and its percentage of “unsuitables”, waste deposited in the wrong place (29.10%) is higher than the city’s average of 22.21%.

This Ciutat Vella neighbourhood also has a higher number of bars and restaurants, establishments that are seen as big generators of organic waste and which therefore require special treatment when it comes to planning the initiatives to be carried out.

Those planned for La Barceloneta include a programme aimed at newcomers and displaying experiences of separating out the Organic Component of Municipal Waste (FORM), an action common to all neighbourhoods.

The target is to improve the quality of the organic component collected by means of a 20% reduction on the 2015 level of “unsuitables” (from 32% to 25%).
