The Garraf is below the Catalan average in terms of recycled waste collection

The Garraf county of Catalonia recycles 43.8% of all waste that is collected, according to data from the Catalan Waste Agency corresponding to the last fiscal year collected, that of 2021.

The data places the Garraf slightly below the Catalan average, which is 44.1%, but significantly below the levels set by the European Union, which are 50%. The EU institution recommends that at least half of all the waste that is generated is recycled. The figure set for 2025 is 55%.

In Catalonia, the county that recycles the most of its waste is Conca de Barberà, where the figure is 80.4% thanks to a plan by its regional council.

El Garraf is almost half the figure of Conca de Barberà and also quite far from other counties of Catalonia, such as Osona (68.6%), Bages (53.1%), Baix Llobregat (48.9%) and Upper Penedès (47.7%).

In contrast, the county of Baix Penedès only recycles 40.4%. The county with the least selective waste collection process is Cerdanya, where only 28.5% is recycled.
