Recycling data

In Spain we are increasingly aware of the importance of selectively separating when it comes to recycling. And, the proof lies in having doubled the recycling rate of glass packaging in two decades, that is, the amount that we recycle with respect to what is placed on the market.

 

Since 1998, we have recycled an amount that could cover 9 times the distance from the Earth to the Moon. But, we are not satisfied with that... we want to go even further!

We give you three outstanding figures and remember that you can consult the data by region, province and municipality in the table below. Use the filters and discover the data!
