Somebody has been using the hillside behind Lobres as a tyre dump. This village lies just north of Salobreña, if your are not sure where it is.
According to one source, there are over 70 tyres of all sizes dumped there. In fact, they were probably dumped further up and have rolled down to this point, just above Cota 100.
This illegal dumping was reported first on social media; one of the dog handlers collaborating with Motril’s Protección Civil, which uses such animals in rescue situations. The man had been out walking his dog when he came across them.
Thankfully, the same volunteer organisation (Ecopuertos), who had organised and carried out the removal of 800 tyres dumped near the cliffs within the municipality of Castell de Ferro last month, have also been alerted, as have the Guardia Civil.
Seprona (Guardia Civil) patrols can do little more than increase surveillance of the area because none of the tyres have serial numbers or any other identification that can used to find out their origin and thus the culprits.
