Rubbish Manoeuvres

Motril Town Hall has sent in the heavy boys armed with crane and JCB to clear away the accumulated rubbish in the dodgy streets of the town.

The Vice Mayor, Juan Fernando Hernández, who is also the Councillor for Calidad Urbana (where do they get these department names?) explained that the war on rubbish would take place in the last week of February but that they would last into March.

The Granada-based, refuse-collection company, Ecoruycan, with 10-years’ experience in the sector, were chosen for the task, after pocketing 60,000 euros, which had to be found outside the normal budget for street cleaning.

The company has already cleaned up the area surrounding the punto limpio (official dump for household furniture & white goods, etc) moving 90 tonnes of discarded rubbish.

The Town Hall admits that this outside help had to be called in owing to the shutting down of the publicly owned, municipal company, Limdeco, and the absorbsion of its workers directly into the ranks of Town Hall maintenance employees.

Once everything is ship shape again, the Policía Local will keep an eye on the northern sector of the municipality aka the badlands.

Editorial comment: the Town Hall is even thinking of installing security cameras up there… but they will probably get nicked, so not much point, really.
