WHERE IS IT?
The city of Alghero, as is probably true in your own place, is running a service for the collection and
provision of urban solid waste in separate form. This system provides for the sorting and separation
of different materials for disposal carried out at home, according to specific rules and a planned timetable.
At the Nonna Giulietta Apartment you'll find three different
containers: one for wet waste (usually leftovers), one for plastic and aluminum (PET bottles, cans, etc.)
and one for dry undifferentiated waste (i.e., every non-polluting material not included in the previous ones).
In the Old Town the collection is carried out door-to-door, according to a certain schedule.
It's important to observe these rules, because there are fines for offenders caught depositing bags
outside the allowed hours. Waste must be placed on the street, beside the main door (your own,
never that of someone else) within the times specified below (for your convenience, next to the
collection containers you'll find a reminder summary).
- Wet: daily from 6:00 to 9:00 (AM)
- Dry: daily from 6:00 to 9:00 (AM)
- Plastic + aluminum: Wednesdays 6:00 to 9:00 (AM)
- Paper and cardboard: Thursdays 6:00 to 9:00 (AM)
- Glass: only in special containers throughout the city
