More quality = lower costs

The law states that the contributions service providers and municipalities receive from Conai and revenues derived from the sale of materials must be deducted from the separate waste collection costs that ultimately determine waste collection bills.


Agreements between operators (or municipalities) and Conai involve contributions that are proportional to the quantity and quality of the material collected. Revenues therefore increase if material being sold is of higher quality.


Conai contributions and revenues from the sale of materials reduce waste disposal bills: in 2017 the benefit was estimated at about Euro 30 per family, or 13% of the bill**

* mostly for paper and cardboard, plastic, glass, iron and wood. These are the main separately collected materials for which there is a Conai contribution or from which Hera obtains sales revenues.
**for a 3-person family living in an 80 m2 apartment: urban waste collection services in 2017 cost 242 euros (Hera area average)
