How to Recycle Rubbish in Granada
« on: September 03, 2017, 02:48:17 AM »
I am staying in an apartment in Granada.

There is a place down the road which has several containers of different colours.
I don't understand which rubbish I can put in each container.

Can anyone help?

Blue is Paper.
On the side they say "Tu papel es importante"
This is clever because "papel" means both paper and role.
So it means "your role/paper is important".

Green  is Glass.
Don't put any ceramics in here.

Yellow  is containers.
This is the most confusing and a category not found in other countries.
It is plastics, aluminium and metal. So:
tins, cans,  Tetra-Brik, plastic bottles, plastic bags etc.

Grey  is general waste.
Anything that won't fit in any of the above.

I doubt if you will need it but there sometimes are other containers.

For example:

    Aceites – Oils
    Ropa – Clothing
    Zapatos – Shoes
    Pilas – Batteries

The above just a basic guide.
If you want to throw away more complicated items you would have to go to the recycling centre.

Here is the address .
