One million kilos of waste recycled in Fuengirola


FUENGIROLA HAS so far this year recycled over a million kilos a waste following a council campaign replacing signs showing people how to responsibly dispose of their rubbish.

The scheme involves new pictures showing that what the various coloured bins should be used for. Figures show the good work is paying off and that recycling in the town is increasing year on year.

The new signs, which are displayed in English and Spanish, were presented by Pedro Vega, Councillor for Cleaning, who said 1,237,938 kilograms of glass, packaging, paper and cardboard have been collected in 2017.

Vega explained, “something as simple as dividing waste and putting it in the correct bins is not always done so we have therefore put together this series of posters in Spanish and English, which will be displayed around the city.” He added the new scheme will “offer residents the best possible information.”
