My Environmental Account
is a pioneering initiative
of the Valencian Inland Consortium
which rewards the individual
good environmental behaviour of
each of its inhabitants
in the Consortium regarding
waste management and recycling.
Using a personal identification card, which may be used every time a member of the family goes to recycle at the Eco Park or Mobile Eco Park, the individual gains environmental reward points which can be converted into direct economic benefits which may involve up to 50% of the tax for waste treatment.
WHO CAN REQUEST A CARD? WHO CAN USE IT?
The card may be requested by any natural person or legal entity (citizens or companies) who pay the household waste treatment tax of the Valencian Inland Consortium. The card, although it is in the name of the natural person who pays the tax, is for family or company use, therefore any member of the family or the company may use it when going to recycle in the network of Eco Parks and Mobile Eco Parks.
HOW CAN I DO IT?
The easiest way of requesting the issue of a completely free card is by going to the nearest Eco Park or Mobile Eco Park in your municipality with one of our identifying documents. There they will provide you with a card that will be ready to use.
HOW DOES IT OPERATE?
When going to recycle special products or ones harmful to the environment which are treated there, you are making treatment of household waste much easier for the Consortium. An operative will attend to you and weigh each of the types of product you are depositing, directly allocating you points to your environmental account depending on the type of waste and its weight. At the end of each year, via the web or at the Eco Parks themselves you can check how many environmental points you have been awarded and what economic benefits you are entitled to, as well as how to receive them.
WHAT BENEFITS CAN I HAVE?
By getting used to recycling you are not just contributing decisively to a better future for our villages and natural environment, but you are also making the waste treatment work of the Valencian Inland Consortium easier. What we save in monetary terms by helping us to separate properly from home, we pass on directly to you, who have achieved it. That’s why we can reward you economically for recycling at our network of Eco Parks and Mobile Eco Parks.
And although we would love to do so, we cannot yet introduce this system for the recycling containers in the streets, because we cannot weigh or control what each person is individually depositing in them. However, by using these packaging containers, you are saving too, because your waste bag weighs less and costs less to treat.
