Fuengirola Top in Recycling

Fuengirola top in recycling

Fuengirola has regained its ‘Green Flag’ as one of the Spanish cities that recycled the most last summer. The town is once again among the top 3 in this national awareness campaign organised by Ecovidrio.

“It is a source of pride that Fuengirola is, time and again, at the top of all the national rankings for its high recycling levels. It shows that the people of Fuengirola are very involved in good practices to protect the environment. This award has been achieved once again by all of us”, said the Mayor Ana Mula.

The Town hall is also launching several awareness campaigns among citizens under the umbrella of the ‘Green Flags’ Movement. For example, neighbourhood councillors have visited catering businesses in all areas of the city that use glass to inform the public about the need for responsible use of the green bins.

Television and radio stations have also broadcast adverts encouraging people to recycle, the Mobility Department has placed posters in the bus shelters at the town’s bus stops and the Council’s social networks have published numerous posts on the subject.

This is not the first time that Fuengirola has received recognition for its recycling or cleanliness levels. In 2018 and 2021, the town was awarded the ‘Green Igloo’ for significantly increasing waste collection during peak tourist months. In 2010, 2016, 2018 and 2022, the town was also awarded the highest national award for cleanliness, the Platinum Broom.
