RESIDENTS of Adra have recycled nearly 18 tonnes of textiles so far this year.
The local council praised the public for doing their bit to care for the planet and to help the less fortunate by depositing unwanted clothes, footwear, blankets, sheets, towels and so on in the 15 green containers distributed around Adra town and in outlying districts, including La Caracola, Puente del Río and La Curva.
The council explained a company provides a service free of charge to the municipality to sort through collected items. Anything in good condition is donated to NGOs for distribution to the needy. The remainder is recycled to be used for products such as construction insulation or industrial textiles.
