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.

Monaco families will very soon have the opportunity to help disadvantaged children prepare for the school year thanks to an innovative initiative created by Click Monaco, in partnership with the Association Les Enfants de Frankie and Stars’n’Bars.
It’s “that” time of the year when children are putting forward their best arguments as to why and how last year’s back pack is no longer suitable for them and a new one is in order. This is why Click Monaco has initiated this unprecedented campaign: #DonneTonAncienCartable (Give me your old backpack), which of course won’t help you avoid rentrée shopping all together but will allow you to do so with some peace of mind.
Kate Powers, co-owner of Stars’n’Bars, says, “We are really delighted with Click’s very original idea of ‘recycling’ to benefit less fortunate children … and also help the planet by reducing waste.”
Based in Monaco, Click Monaco is a unique platform for classified ads regrouping all types of goods and services for sale, but also more importantly in this case: donations. This campaign launches Sunday September 4, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, at Stars’n’Bars, in order for everyone to deposit last year’s backpack, while enjoying a sunny afternoon on the Port Hercule. All bags collected that day will be distributed on September 7 in Nice by Les Enfants de Frankie.
