Majadahonda is a municipality belonging to the Community of Madrid. The municipality has already embarked on the path towards Sustainability by launching optimization initiatives for its cleaning and waste collection services. Majadahonda covers waste management for a population of more than 70,000 inhabitants, providing collection services for a total of nearly 2,000 plastic, glass, paper/cardboard and organic waste containers.
At the time the study was carried out, the city council had contracted collection services with the current concessionaire and had established the collection frequency for each type of waste.
In order to assess the established collection frequency and how well it responded to citizen use, the council planned to analyze filling level trends in containers. By doing so, they could use precise data to determine the true optimal collection frequency and reflect their findings in the new concession.
The goal is to obtain highly valuable information that will serve to improve collection service specifications, ensuring they adapt to the needs of Majadahonda residents.
