Ecovidrio, a non-profit entity in charge of managing the recycling of glass container waste in Spain, has presented the selective collection data corresponding to the year 2022 in Aragon. In total, throughout last year, the Aragonese deposited 20,598 tons of glass containers in the green containers of the region, which is 0.5% more than in 2021.
In this way, each citizen deposited 15.5 kg of glass containers in the containers, which is equivalent to about 53 containers per person, a figure lower than the national average (19.8 kg and 68 containers per person).
By provinces, Huesca led the citizen contribution to the selective collection of glass with 22.9 kilograms per inhabitant, followed by Teruel (17.1 Kg/inhab) and Zaragoza (13.6 Kg/inhab).
The maintenance and installation of new green containers is essential to facilitate the collaboration of citizens and hoteliers in the separation and subsequent recycling of glass containers. Aragón currently has 7,296 green containers distributed throughout the region. During 2022, the Aragonese have deposited in them about 193,000 glass containers per day or about 134 containers per minute.
