New extraordinary cleaning and disinfection campaign in all neighborhoods in Benidorm
The performance will last longer than three weeks
The Department of Street Cleaning has started an extraordinary cleaning and disinfection campaign that in a few days will reach all neighborhoods of the city. This has been announced today by the Councilor for Road Cleaning, José Ramón González de Zárate, who also pointed out that the action "will not reduce the work carried out daily in parks, schools, bus stops or senior centers".
This morning, while the operators of the road cleaning concession company, FCC, were working in the neighborhood of Foietes, González de Zárate clarified that each shift of the special brigade “is made up of six specialists and three vehicles: one of flushing, another for disinfection and a sweeper ”.
"In the first place - he specified - the flushing machine" cleans the road, even under parked vehicles. The dirt is removed by the sweeper and finally an environmental biocide, disinfectant, bactericidal and fungicidal product is nebulized ”. After the brigade has passed, the operators of the regular cleaning shift go over the route and empty the bins into the bucket trolley.
González de Zárate has emphasized that this extraordinary campaign does not imply "at all a reduction in the daily cleaning service of the city", nor will it cost "not one euro more to the municipal coffers", since it is "an action that from the City Council and the concessionaire we have believed necessary given the current health emergency situation in which we must all collaborate to overcome ”.
For this reason, the Department of Street Cleaning, has requested the collaboration of the Neighborhood Council, so that they coordinate with the neighborhood associations and "can communicate any incident or request any additional action in the neighborhoods." The work that has begun in the Madrid neighborhood will continue along Alfredo Corral, Beniardá, Jaime I and Armada Española avenues until reaching La Cala. Next, the brigade "will move to the remaining areas of Benidorm." The extraordinary cleaning campaign will last for more than three weeks and will reach “absolutely every neighborhood in the city”.
"What we want - De Zárate has emphasized - is a total disinfection of all of Benidorm". The councillor has asked citizens to "take care" by leaving home as little as possible and "maintaining a safe distance and protection", although the City Council "is giving its all" with actions such as this extraordinary campaign.
