Voluminous waste and household appliances
Voluminous waste (mattresses, refrigerators, furniture, household appliances, etc.) which, due to their characteristics (dimensions, weight, properties, etc.) cannot be deposited in the containers, can be managed through the following means:
Voluminous waste and household appliances which are in a good condition can be reused through Fundación Deixalles, which collects them from your home free of charge (Tel. 900 772 211).
If it cannot be given another use, it may be deposited at any of the clean points on the island (Red Insular de Centros de recogida).
Moreover, it can be collected by the municipal waste services calling tel. 971318485 (individuals only).
Construction and demolition waste (C&DW) and inerts
C&DW is considered to be waste characteristic of the construction and demolition work (rubble, debris, excavation work, insulation materials, etc.). Construction and demolition waste can be managed through the Red Insular de Centros de recogida (www.deixallerieseivissa.com).
For large quantities, for a correct management, it will be deposited at a controlled dump for inert waste for use in restoring inactive quarries or it will be managed through authorised waste managers.
Garden remains and pruning
Plant remains from pruning and gardening may be taken to the Red Insular de Centros de recogida (www.deixallerieseivissa.com). For large quantities however, this should be managed through authorised enterprises.
Very often however, it is possible to use these remains to produce organic fertilizer through home composting of organic waste.
This is waste which contains some substance or element that require a specific decontamination treatment to reduce their danger level. Among the dangerous waste which may be produced in households are:
- Paint and varnishes
- Cleaning products
- Used batteries, etc.
This waste can be deposited at the Red Insular de Centros de recogida. Once there, this waste is managed through authorised managers which submit it to the necessary decontamination and treatment processes. In large quantities, the management of this waste must be made through authorised waste managers. End-of-life vehicles (VFU) are motor vehicles which their owners want to get rid of. Given the complexity of the elements that form a VFU, and the dangerous nature of some of its components (fuel, refrigerants, brake fluid, etc.) they should be correctly managed. For this reason, to be able to deregister a VFU, it must be taken to an authorized Centre for its reception and decontamination. The management of this waste is carried out through waste managers authorised by the Board of Environment of the Balearic Government.
