LA NUCIA is the only town in the Alicante province that provides municipal rubbish bins especially for its green-fingered residents’ garden cuttings and waste.
The bins are filled daily and often by private companies and residents from other municipalities across the Marina Baixa.
La Nucia residents complain that the bins are always full when they go to use them.
The Town Hall have now amended an existing by-law meaning the dumping of garden cuttings and waste in municipal rubbish bins by private companies and residents from other municipalities will be considered an offence.
Private companies and residents from other municipalities found dumping in municipal rubbish bins will be fined €800 on the spot.
