Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Minister of Infrastructure, Environment and Urbanism, has announced the launch of the smart-city Cliiink device, Monaco’s reward programme for sorting glass packaging.

The minister pointed out that waste accounts for one-third of greenhouse gas emissions, and added that the new reward programme is based on ambitious criteria, as part of Monaco’s energy transition policy.

The 28 public green collection points for glass are now equipped with an intelligent counting system fixed on the container’s collection lids.

The user accumulates points that allow him to benefit from offers offered by more than 50 merchants (to date) in the Principality or the points can be converted into donations to charity.

Glass is a major part of waste. It takes many thousands of years before it disintegrates totally in nature. However, it is 100 percent recyclable.
