Participation and communication campaign for the change of municipal waste management model in Sant Boi de Llobregat

Session about return made in October 2016
Within the framework of the Selective Collection Plan for waste 2015-2020, whose objectives are to improve the waste collection service, optimize resources and improve public space, it is foreseen a first stage in which containers of the municipality are changed and the collection of voluminous is modified. This is accompanied by a strategy of communication and participation.
 
 
The objective of the present project is to improve the service, optimizing the locations of the container network with the maximum involvement of the users. This improvement has been accompanied by a change of image that symbolizes the “renewal” of the service and a communication and participatory process with citizens.
 
 
This action to improve the collection service is driven for different reasons. There is, on the one hand, a citizen demand because of the bad perception about the quality of the service that is being offered, with an old-fashioned and deteriorated fleet and urban furniture. And they are, on the other hand, some results that situate Sant Boi de Llobregat among the municipalities that are placed in the queue of the selective collection of waste in the metropolitan area of Barcelona. In the last years, the tendency has been even negative, therefore it is important to correct it not only for an environmental issue but also to advance in front of the announced increases in the price of the fee that municipalities have to pay for the waste they generate and that end up in the landfill, which are paid by all citizens through the water bill.
