Salobreña now sports 70 new litter bins, distributed all over the municipality – gripping news, we know!
This purchase was possible thanks to a surplus of 3.4m euros in the 2018 budget, part of which was destined for the Plan de Inversiones Financieramente Sostenibles, approved in a Plenary Meeting of the Town Council in May this year.
Each bin is made of metal and has a lid to stop the wind whipping out its contents and, a wonder of 21st Century technology, you can’t see the bag inside *Gasp!*
They are also supposed to be vandal-proof, as the screws that keep them attached to their supports are hidden inside *Double Gasp!*
Oh, and Contenur, who supplies hoppers, has ceded new such containers to the Town Hall which have the capacity of 3,000 litre; they’re lower and longer than the previous ones. The rubbish-collection lorries and their crews are practicing to make sure that they can handle them.
Back to the litter bins – you thought that you had escaped this mindless drivel, hadn’t you! The ones that are placed in the old town along Calle Juan XXIII and Calle Al-Salam will be encased in wood to make them more aesthethically pleasing.
