Recycling etc
« on: July 08, 2019, 11:14:05 AM »
I'm just wondering if Italy has come on in recent years re local recycling centres / tips. In the UK & France every town has a centre where people can take items for recycling / rubbish / old fridges etc etc. I've never come across anything like that in Italy but wondered if things have changed in the years that we've been here.

Of course, most of the communal rubbish / recycling bins have disappeared from Abruzzo over the years, to be replaced by individual household ones.

We have a recently deceased fridge & the wisdom seems to be "Contact the commune & they'll take it away at Point X in the future". Is that still the best advice?

In Abruzzo since March 2013

I suspect it depends where one lives - although I'm sure contacting the commune will work - eventually. In fact we have a proper recycling place near us in the Castilenti commune.
