The Maresme Consortium for Municipal Solid Waste Treatment (hereafter Consortium) is an administrative entity belonging to the public sector of the Mataró Town Hall, created to deal with the management and treatment of the municipal waste of the Maresme area.
After more than 30 years, the Consortium has achieved a respected record and international prestige by committing to environmental and energy innovation in the area.
Since 1985 the Consortium has been the contract holder of a waste treatment facility located in Mataró, on the les Hortes industrial estate. This centre has evolved over time into the current modern plant, becoming what is known as the 3rd generation of the Consortium’s infrastructures.
This model facility has been operating since 2012 as the Maresme Integral Centre for Waste Recovery, which now serves approximately a million inhabitants (Maresme and Vallés Oriental).
