The Balearic Islands are a popular destination for millions of tourists, and tourism drives local development and prosperity. Given the large number of people visiting the islands, the population fluctuates between 1 million in winter and 6 million in summer. This poses major challenges in terms of assuring the reliable disposal of the waste produced on a daily basis.
