It’s a dirty job… call in the troops


MEMBERS OF a local military detachment in Cabo Roig, have recently joined municipal cleaners in a massive pre summer clean up on the rocky coastal areas of Aguamarina in Orihuela Costa.

The operation needs to be conducted by experts, as ropes are required to clear debris from overhanging ridges and cliffs, therefore soldiers from the Teniente Morejon division under the command of Major Vives are seconded for the difficult duties.

Luisa Boné, city councillor for beaches of the city of Orihuela, thanked the cleaning team for performing the operation in particular the military detachment: “Who always co-operate in an unselfish and helpful way for the benefit of all the municipality on this occasion to improve the appearance of an area which is very difficult to access for cleaning.” Said Ms Bone.

She also pointed out that a weekly market takes place every Thursday and of course, a lot of rubbish accumulates on both the rocky coasts as well as in the adjacent micro-reserve and includes paper, plastic waste, wood residues and cans.

The cleaning works for the elimination and the selective collection of any type of waste such as paper, plastic waste, wood residues, cans, etc.
