Waste collection and urban cleaning

We enter into service agreements with individual local authorities for the efficient management of waste collection services, providing solutions designed to meet diverse needs, from door-to-door sorted waste collection to controlled-access waste containers (lidded).

We have always invested in resources and technologies in order to improve our services because we are well aware of the strategic importance of waste management in the protection of the environment. In addition to sorted waste collection, we provide people with many other services for the collection of particular kinds of waste.

From the collection of bulky waste to our ‘eco-islands’, special WEEE collection points, from urban waste bins to general waste recycling centres and waste collection services for street markets. Our aim is to collaborate with local authorities and the people themselves to ensure that we have towns and cities that are always clean, pleasant and cared for.

Services for the region: Amsa and Aprica

We provide customised recycling solutions for the local communities, placing them in the service of the circular economy and value-generating path. We take care of cities: we provide street cleaning and other municipal waste-collection services on a daily basis.

Our goal is to make the cities and regions we work in centres of environmental excellence, and we rely on the buy-in from the local community to do this.

PULIamo is our free app dedicated to the local communities, and to AMSA and APRICA customers, intended to provide a guide to the world of waste collection.

By entering your address, you will be able to access a wide array of services offered by the leading waste-collection companies in the A2A Group.

The app alerts you to the collection days scheduled for your home, and provides you all the information you need to properly sort your recyclables. Moreover, where available, it allows to submit a pick-up request for cumbersome waste, abnormal situations to be reported (illegal dumping, overflowing receptacles, etc.) and information to be provided on the location of the ecological platforms. Through the application, it is also possible to understand when the streets will be washed.

By downloading the PULIamo app onto your smartphone, not only will you have a convenient tool at your disposal, you will also be doing your part to keep the city clean and to protect the environment.




We manage all types of industrial waste, both hazardous and non hazardous, either directly through our plants, or through third parties, and the entire process for reclaiming contaminated soil and waters.

Our approach involves accurate preliminary analysis, aimed at identifying the best methods for depositing, salvaging, and disposing of waste based on the type of material to be processed, before moving onto designing and fully implementing a range of services: global service, micro collections, MUD [Environmental Impact Statement] form completion, safe destruction, environmental consultancy.
