The recycling centre in Manacor, Mallorca, has extended its opening hours and also has a new system for the disposal of asbestos.
The Department of the Environment of the Manacor Town Hall has announced that the Manacor recycling centre (Ecoparc) is extending its opening hours from the first week of August, thereby improving the service and allowing citizens to go there to drop off waste any day of the week. From Monday to Friday the recycling centre is open from 9am to 1pm and from 3.30pm to 7pm, and now also on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am to 2pm.
“With this measure, we are improving the service, and we also want to try to reduce the possible dumping of bulky waste in unsuitable places, which tends to happen mostly at weekends. Now there is no excuse,” said the delegate for the Environment, Sebastià Llodrà, on July 31.
The Manacor Town Hall has also implemented a new service for the collection of asbestos. From now on, asbestos can only be disposed of in airtight bags that can be collected free of charge from the recycling centre (one per person per month).
