Two refuse-collection workers have been suspended without pay after video footage emerged of them dumping rubbish bags down a nearby barranco.
This video was taken around the of 16th August along Calle Bronce in Marbella and the workers belong to Residuos Sólidos Urbanos (RSU), which holds the municipal contract. The footage was immediately uploaded onto social media, which is how the Town Hall found out about the inexcusable behaviour of the culprits.
The footage clearly shows both workers throwing six bags over a fence, down into the barranco under the cover of darkness; bags they had picked up along the street that had not been placed in the hoppers.
