30/08/2012 Lanzarote (BG) - The waste management and disposal department of the Cabildo de Lanzarote is coordinating a campaign to clean up the paper and cardboard recycling containers on the island. The containers are part of the “sustainable and environmentally friendly image” of Lanzarote and it does not inspire much confidence in the system if they are looking like waste themselves.
According to the Cabildo, the majority of the cleaning work includes cleaning graffiti marks and repairing some containers damaged by vandals. The clean up started recently in Playa Honda, and will spread to Arrecife and the tourist resorts of the island. The cleaning campaign is also being carried out on the northern island of La Graciosa.
The estimated time period needed for the completion of the campaign is three months. The Cabildo have asked citizens to respect the campaign and apologise for any inconvenience the operation may cause.
