 The collection service for the disposal of bulky items in Malaga’s Rincon de la Victoria is free all year round, and the public have been asked to use it.

As of June 30, the Public Safety Department of the Rincon de la Victoria Town Hall is carrying out a campaign to monitor and control the disposal of bulky items such as old furniture on the municipality’s public streets.

According to Borja Ortiz, councillor for the Local Police, this control is “due to the increased presence of furniture, rubble and pruning waste near the solid urban waste containers in residential areas”.   

The mayor of Rincon de la Victoria, Francisco Salado, has asked the public to cooperate by “not leaving rubbish bags outside the containers, as given the high summer temperatures, they can become a source of infections and bad smells, putting public health at risk”.

Those who wish to dispose of bulky items should contact the recycling and waste disposal centre (Punto Limpio) on 952971234 between 8am and 2pm to obtain a code that will allow them to track the disposal.

Waste from gardening work can be deposited in the organic waste containers in airtight bags when it does not exceed 500 litres per day.
