Another point included in the last Plenary Meeting of the Town Council was the approval of awarding the municipal refuse collection and street cleaning contract to Cepsa. The company won the contract after presenting a bid of 1,208,618 euros.
The new mixed contract not only includes refuse collection and street cleaning, but also includes the cleaning of municipal buildings and installations, which represents a saving of 600,000 euros for the town coffers.
Councillor Mª Carmen Callejón explained that the changeover would entail a change of routes and the direct management of Puntos Limpios; centralized rubbish collection points where different types of rubbish material have their own containers.
She reassures the people of Salobreña that the savings obtained through the awarding of the contract to this new company will not represent a drop in standards, as well as promising that it will not bring about a loss of jobs, either.
