The bin,
our sign of identity

They are part of our cities' landscapes; they have been living with us for over 40 years; they are dressed up for special occasions and festivities...

Our bins are green, reminding us of the green of trees, forests and fields. However, in some cities, town halls are installing their own bins and changing their shape and colour so they are similar to bins for other fractions.

Igloos with history
OVER THREE DECADES GIVING NEW LIFE TO GLASS PACKAGING

Did you know that glass packaging was the first to arrive at our country? Madrid and Barcelona were the pioneering cities in recycling glass packaging, but in a matter of months the initiative extended to a large number of Spanish cities. The iconic igloo-shaped bins soon became part of the entire country's urban landscape.

The first igloo-shaped bin that was placed in Spain was in the neighbourhood
of Moratalaz, in Madrid, on 1 February 1982.

Wherever you are
THERE IS ALWAYS A BIN NEARBY

60% of Spanish households claim that they have a bin for recycling glass packaging less than 50 metres from their home. And we are one of the countries with the most bins in Europe!
