In order to continue investing all available resources in the management and treatment of waste the optimization of management costs continues to be one of our main objectives, thereby contributing to the consolidation of a solvent system providing maximum possible guarantees.
The individual surpluses of the Foundation’s different Activity Sectors for the year 2018 stand at €10,784.
Ecotic’s budget for waste management, which includes transportation, treatment, collection and settlements with local installers, distributors and entities, is 87.8%, the same percentage as the previous year since the weight of the different budget items within the total expenditure has remained stable.
The amount allocated to WEEE Management has increased by 6.7% in relation to the previous year. This is due to a combination of a 9% increase in quantities managed and a reduction of 2.3 % in the collection cost per ton, thereby optimizing management costs and improving our efficiency.
Spending on Structure has been reduced by 1.8% and on other Management Costs by 3.5%.
