Containers and bags distribution


It is the City Council’s responsibility to ensure the delivery, replacement and repair of containers of individual and collective use, on their own initiative or upon request.

The maintenance and cleaning of containers is responsibility of the citizens or companies to whom they are assigned (owners, condominiums, residents, managers, administrators and entities).

Lisboa City Council ensures the cleaning of large containers, installed on public roads.



In historic neighborhoods, Lisboa City Council delivers regularly bags and ribbons of different colors for recyclable waste (paper and packages).

If the delivery isn’t done within the proper days, citizens can request personalized delivery bags and ribbons by Tel .: 808 203 232 or through online services.
