Project: Implementation of intelligent opening system

The new garbage collection system with smart containers has been implemented progressively during the months of September to January 2020, with the progressive closure of the containers in these municipalities, where there are 90 closures of each type. This new service has been carried out in more than 3,300 homes in 15 municipalities and different towns in the Conca de Barberà. Already in July 2018, in Conca de Barberà, a pilot test was also carried out in Rocafort de Queralt and after assessing its operation, it was decided to implement it in all the small towns in the region since the experience was very positive, achieving nearly 80% recycling rate (when starting from 54%). The intelligent opening system consists of the installation of a closure that is located on the lids of the organic and waste containers and keeps them locked. The user, by means of an electronic card, can be identified and this is what allows the container to be unlocked through an electromechanical device. The citizen can only access it through a magnetic card or a mobile application (Civiwaste) that is associated with a domicile, that is, an address, so that the data with which they work is the same as the current ones. , garbage collection fees. With the aim of solving doubts and problems that could arise for the neighbors, informative actions were carried out in all the centers participating in the waste collection on the operation of the application and/or obtaining the card
