The new containers, two for packaging, one for cardboard and two for organic paper, improve the image, cleanliness and facilitate waste collection
Benidorm incorporates five new underground containers for selective and organic collection at Plaza del Infant
The Department of Street Cleaning has installed five new underground containers at Plaza del Infant that substantially improve the waste collection service on public roads and the image of this enclave.
These are two organic waste containers, two for packaging and one more for cardboard paper that replaces the previously existing ones, which took up more space on the surface and generated more dirt.
The Councilor for Street Cleaning, José Ramón González de Zárate, and the Councilor for Citizenship Participation, Ana Pellicer, verified their operation 'in situ' this morning and there the councillor highlighted "that the area has gained a lot in the image because before we had many more containers and now, like those installed in l'Hort de Colón, we have them underground and with greater capacity”.
The new containers, in addition, will not pose some of the problems that arose with the previous ones. “The old ones had the motor below the surface and often caused flood and stop working. Now, being on the surface, that problem disappears” explained González de Zárate. At the same time, there is also gain in terms of occupational risk prevention, and ease of cleaning containers. "They are also more accessible to people" added the councilor.
The head of Street Cleaning encouraged the neighbors "to do recycling" and to comply with the schedule to deposit the waste. "In this way, we will have fewer problems with the smell, although with these new containers that problem is more controlled," he indicated. In the case of organic waste, the hours are from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
This new point is more aimed at residents since there are not many bars and restaurants in the area, so it has been decided not to install a glass container and leave the one that is already installed at the intersection of Maravall and Urano streets.
"Here we won not only in image but in a better service to residents of Alfredo Corral" stated González de Zárate.
