Street hygiene concerns go on in Malaga

Street hygiene concerns go on
Excess of garbage

RESIDENTS of Malaga’s Calle Bodegueros are up in arms over the sight of over spilling rubbish.

As litter remains strewn around the street’s rubbish containers, one local told a publication, “the street is practically impassable due to the excess of garbage left over from the containers for more than a week.” In another area, Camino de San Rafael, residents are also claiming businesses are using the area to dump commercial rubbish including sofas and televisions.

Meanwhile, residents of the Gualdhorce poligono will breathe a sigh of relief after it was this month announced a wastewater treatment plant will be covered over.
The plant, which has been the source of odours in the area, will be given new covers which will help reduce smells given off by sewage as it is treated.

The €342,100 project, which will take three months, will see a retractable roof placed over parts of the plant. The facility is one of three managed by Emasa in Malaga, helping to treat water from Churriana, Camapanillas, Puerto de la Torre, Torremolinos and Alhaurin de la Torre.
