A COSTA Blanca Town Hall has signalled its involvement in a whopping 100 active proceedings against fly-tippers.
Javea’s department of Services revealed the cases overwhelming concern tradesmen such as ‘gardeners’ who dump their waste at the more than 20 ‘green points’ in the municipality.
The remainder of sanctionary actions are against persons disorderly dumping ‘furniture’ or ‘equipment’ outside of designated containers.
The department’s councillor Kika Mata said the waste created a ‘bad public image’ leading to a strong crackdown.
Breaking the rules regulating Javea’s green points can result in penalties up to €750 in cases of reoffending.
Regulations only allow for depositing of waste into separate containers, including: paper and card; plastics, tins and cartons; glass; and general waste.
Kika Mata reminded that professionals and tradesmen – gardeners, labourers, builders, or otherwise – are prohibited from using the green points. Instead, the industrial Ramblars dump is available at a ‘low price’.
The municipality also has a free home collection service, upon request by telephone number 900 102 149.
The Ecopark, the municipal facility for waste too large for the green points, are available for citizens free of charge, Monday to Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
