Benidorm ho­tels' trash threat

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

Ho­tels in Benidorm are threat­en­ing to go to court over coun­cil plans to in­crease their rub­bish col­lec­tion rates.

Benidorm town hall has an­nounced a com­plete re­vi­sion of the rates to make them more 'fair'. One of the most con­tro­ver­sial mat­ters are rates charged to ho­tels.

While bars and restau­rants pay €1,136 per year for rub­bish col­lec­tion, ho­tel din­ning rooms only pay €379. In ad­di­tion, ho­tels pay €39.89 per ho­tel room.

Hous­ing units pay an an­nual rate of €112.74 and hol­i­day apart­ments €39.89 - the same rate camp­site pay per pitch.

The coun­cil plans would spell in in­crease in rates for ho­tels to close the gap with bars and restu­ar­ants - but ho­tels warn they would not be able to face the ex­tra cost and say they will fight in court if the tax is in­creased.
