The new campaign in Velez-Malaga will teach people in the hospitality industry about the importance of organic waste management.

On June 6, the first deputy mayor of Velez-Malaga, Jesús Pérez Atencia, and the councillor for the Environment of the Velez-Malaga Town Hall, Antonio Ariza, presented a new waste management campaign to be carried out at the catering and restaurant establishments in the municipality.

Pérez Atencia said: “Only by correctly managing the waste generated in our daily activities will we be able to maintain a cleaner municipality and be more respectful of the environment.”

Ariza added: “Optimising waste management has become a fundamental task in order to meet the objectives set by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which was launched in November 2021 in the municipality of Velez-Malaga.”

The campaign will particularly highlight the importance of containers for organic waste (brown lid). Ariza said: “The Department of the Environment has monitored the use of these containers, obtaining negative results in some cases, as users of the areas where they are located tend to use them for all types of waste.”

Ariza finished by highlighting citizens’ collective responsibility, stating: “Cleanliness and waste management is everyone’s task.”
