Waste management in Galicia

The management of waste generated in any activity is necessary, since it can be harmful to health and the environment.

The moment any material loses its usefulness, ending its purpose, it becomes waste, and it is very important to take care of it.

At PMA we work daily on optimizing this process, including waste collection, transportation to our prepared facilities and subsequent treatment.

Specialists in all types of waste

We are specialists in a wide variety of waste: industrial waste, automotive waste, electronic waste, etc.



The consequences of poor waste management can be disastrous for the environment. When treatment is inadequate, waste ends up in landfills and incinerators, causing problems in the soil, water and air.

Hazardous waste management

Waste classification is a task that must be carried out by professionals. At PMA Nutrigras, we take care of the collection of hazardous waste and provide adequate and risk-free treatment.

Hazardous waste is that which presents one or more of the dangerous characteristics, and that which may be approved by the Government in accordance with the provisions of European regulations or international conventions to which Spain is a party, as well as the containers and packaging that have contained them.
