Currently are available 17 biowaste collection circuits (food waste) along HORECA channel establishments and similar in LIPOR associated municipalities: Espinho, Gondomar, Maia, Matosinhos, Porto, Póvoa de Varzim, Valongo and Vila do Conde and also in the cities of Esposende and Viana do Castelo and, more recently, in Ambisousa, intermunicipal system through protocols established for that purpose.
In 2013, the initiative covered more than 1,500 establishments and allowed the recovery through composting more than 13,500 tons of organic waste. It should be noted the excellent quality of such material approved in Lipor Organic recovery Plant, since in more than 5,000 annual discharges, not been identified any situation of non-compliance.
Sorting and recovery of organic waste is reflected in the production of a high quality natural organic compost, having this project, that counts with the cooperation of the Municipalities members of Lipor, allowed producing about 3000 tons of compost, product with great benefits for the national soils, very deficient in organic matter.
