New mini recycling point in Puerto
Puerto de la Cruz has a new mini collection point for selective domestic waste located in the Plaza del Charco.
The Mayor, Lope Afonso thanked Tenerife Cabildo for providing the facility which adds to the various environ-ment projects in the munici-pality.
Councillor of general services, Ángel Montañés said this latest initiative “seeks to bring to citizens the correct recycling of the different waste they generate, facilitating the collection of waste that is usually abandoned on public roads or in unsuitable con-tainers.”
After the initial period of two weeks, the mini point will move to the area of San Antonio, for a similar period of time, and will then travel around the municipality.
Residents can deposit electrical appliances, house-hold hazardous waste, batter-ies, fluorescent, clothing, etc., in addition to receiving information on the correct way to recycle, in order to increase the rate of municipal recycling.
