  • Batteries and light bulbs: you can recycle them through specialized channels. There are also many collection points in supermarkets.
  • Expired medicines: they must be brought to a pharmacy to ensure that they are disposed of environmentally and safely.
  • Electrical and electronic equipment: there are dedicated channels for this type of waste material. You can take them to a distributor. You can also donate it to an association or drop it off at an eco-center. Some mobile operators will take your old cell phone back to the store to recondition it or give it to an association.
  • Edible oils: they can be disposed of in your regular bin in small quantities, but it is preferable to dispose of them in eco centers.
  • Motor oil and other waste oils : you can dispose of these oils in eco-centers.
  • Tires: they must be brought to a garage or an eco-center. Don’t hesitate to call your garage in advance to make sure they take the old tires. You can also bring them to the municipal garage without the rims.

By depositing your waste materials in the right place, you are helping to protect the environment.
