Organic kitchen waste bins required in ALL towns in Valencian Community by 2020

ALL towns in the Valencian Community will be required to have organic waste containers by the end of 2020, it has been revealed.

Environment councillor for Denia Josep Crespo said this week that an EU recycling grant will pay for 12 new containers in Jesus Pobre and La Xara in the upcoming weeks.

Crespo added, however, that funding will stop if the Valencian Generalitat fails to reach each of its municipalities in the designated time.

Organic waste bins are brown in colour, and take both kitchen waste and soft plant material.

Crespo added that Orba has become a poster town after a home collection service has seen organic waste recycling shoot up from 16% to 80%.

A similar scheme is hoped for La Xara and Jesus Pobre.
