Natural Resources and Waste

Download the ‘Municipal, community and domestic composting in Mallorca: challenges and alternatives’ presentations

As you know, Amics de la Terra, the Raiguer community and Porreres council organised five activities under the heading of ‘Municipal, community and domestic composting in Mallorca: challenges and alternatives’, analysing the current situation for organic waste in Mallorca, the main challenges faced and possible alternatives.

Find out more about the courses, days and programmes.

During the technical days, four experts spoke about waste, giving a guided tour of: European, state and Balearic legislation with respect to organic waste; the use of organic waste in Mallorca; domestic composting’s opportunities and advantages; how to improve soil fertility; whether organic rubbish is waste or a resource; community and supramunicipal composting experiences in Navarra; and other European and state examples of local organic waste management.
