It aims to test a solution based on the collection with automatic machines in a restricted area - a municipality with a high population density - assessing the degree of population adherence to this new collection mechanism. It is intended to test the "effectiveness" of collection sites based on commercial surfaces of different sizes and formats, preparing the future Deposit System.
