Dustmen denounce ‘lazy’ resident who threw three gas canisters into organic waste bin in Benitachell

DUSTMEN have hit out against ‘laziness’ after three gas canisters nearly caused a fire in a rubbish truck.

The Weber bottles were thrown into an ‘organic waste’ bin, in Benitachell, which caused a ‘leak’ when crushed in the truck.

When Poblenet workers began to smell gas they had to call in firefighters from Denia, who secured a perimeter around the truck due to the homes nearby.

“These gas bottles cannot be thrown into any kind of rubbish container,” a spokeswoman told the Olive Press.

“They must be returned to the place of purchase, and not thrown in with kitchen and garden waste.”

Police in Benitachell also urged ‘responsibility’ and ‘collaboration’ with municipal services.
