Recycling in Lanzarote

Lanzarote is a Biosphere Reserve, almost half of the island is a protected area (42%), which is why it is important for our residents and visitors to the island to participate in our recycling schemes.

Recycling in Lanzarote

We are lucky, we have an excellent rubbish collection service in Lanzarote. Unlike the UK we don’t have to wait for a weekly collection service, we simply dispose of our rubbish into the collection of special bins provided as and when we need to. These bins are emptied several times a week so that the rubbish isn’t left overflowing onto the streets which would be awful considering our warm temperate climate.
