The town have begun replacing the side-loading bins that have been in use for the collection of recycling. The old style containers were acquired more than twenty years ago and have according to the council outlived their use.
The new containers are according to Luisa María García Chamorro, Mayor of Motril, large capacity units that allow for the selective collection of waste. Speaking about waste collection she said: “these containers will solve historical problems in those neighbourhoods where the condition of the containers made waste collection difficult.” Continuing she said: “these new containers will allow for the separate collection and recycling of organic waste, packaging and paper and cardboard.”
According to the Councillor for Cleaning, Jesús Jiménez, the 66 containers that have been purchased cost nearly 70,000 euros and haver been acquired with support from European Funds. In terms of their use, 25 will be used for organic waste, 23 for light packaging and 18 units for paper and cardboard.
