The door-to-door waste pickup system has recently been implemented in Segrià, with 35,000 people in the region using this service. This system allows for a significant increase in the selective collection percentage when compared with the previous refuse container system. The service includes the management of drop-off centers in Alcarràs, Alguaire and Corbins, and the construction and management of nine enclosed recycling points and 23 small drop-off centers.

The service includes the delivery of containers and waste bins to the community as well as the collection,
transportation to the treatment plant and recycling of waste generated by the residents of 22 towns in the region.
Door-to-door collection involves delivering the waste from the front door to the municipal waste collection service on specific days and at specific times for each category of waste.
 
The purpose of managing the drop-off centers is to increase the reuse, exchange and recycling of materials. There is collaboration with tertiary industry companies in order to recover as many items 

and materials as possible from these points.
 
The contract also includes the construction and management of 6 recycling areas and 23 small drop-off centers across the region, improving the proximity of facilities for citizens depositing their waste in the event of emergencies and depositing waste that should go to the drop-off centers.

Communication campaigns are carried out by means of two environmental education professionals. Informative visits and inspection and monitoring tasks re also carried out.
