Charleroi: new underground containers for glass collection will be installed in the city

In the Charleroi region, the intermunicipal waste treatment company Tibi will continue to develop its network of buried containers for glass waste. This is what Alderman Mahmut Dogru in charge of Cleanliness has just confirmed in a response to the written question from PTB municipal councilor Roberto D’Amico. It was in 2018 that this glass collection pilot project started. With this system, which has already proven itself in other areas, it becomes easy to get rid of your glass bottles whenever you want. Buried containers offer much more flexibility to the citizen. It is no longer necessary to store the glass in its housing while awaiting door-to-door collection. Accessible seven days a week between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., the containers improve not only the collection and recycling rate, but also the quality of sorting, thanks to a separation of white glass and colored glass, as in recyparks.

A perimeter has been defined for the deployment of this system, taking into account the work planned as part of the “Charleroi District Créatif” project in the upper town. As the projects progressed, buried containers were installed and put into service, explains the alderman.

To date, the network has 43. The results obtained are positive: the tonnage of glass collected has remained stable and is in line with the average results for the area. This means in concrete terms that citizens have adopted this new method of collection. In addition, the Tibi intercommunal services have not noted any major negative consequences on cleanliness in the immediate vicinity of the containers. “We will therefore continue to extend the network. In the short term, the installation of new buried containers is planned in order to cover the entire perimeter initially defined”concludes the supervisory alderman.
