Rub­bish trans­fer plant project re­vealed

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News -

THE PROJECT for a rub­bish trans­fer plant in Dolores was un­veiled in the mu­nic­i­pal­ity on Tues­day to may­ors, coun­cil­lors and res­i­dents of the Vega Baja area.

Re­gional gov­ern­ment tech­ni­cians ex­plained what it will con­sist of, as­sured it is harm­less to peo­ple’s health and the en­vi­ron­ment, and will save money and gen­er­ate em­ploy­ment.

Mayor of Dolores Joaquín Hernán­dez said the plans are now avail­able for any mem­ber of the pub­lic to ex­am­ine and present any ob­jec­tions they may have in or­der to im­prove how the fa­cil­ity will be man­aged.

He said he had of­fered land in the in­dus­trial es­tate to house the plant be­cause he was con­vinced it will be an ‘in­ter­est­ing and ben­e­fi­cial project’, vow­ing that ‘res­i­dents’ in­ter­ests will come first’.

Ad­dress­ing con­cerns that trucks us­ing it will cause traf­fic prob­lems, he noted hun­dreds of trucks al­ready use the in­dus­trial es­tate and no one has ever com­plained.

Re­gional di­rec­tor gen­eral for cli­mate change Joan Pi­quer added that sev­eral roads will be im­proved to cope with ad­di­tional traf­fic.

Pres­i­dent of the Vega Baja waste man­age­ment con­sor­tium, Manuel Pineda as­sured that this will be a 21st cen­tury in­stal­la­tion and noth­ing re­motely like the ‘out­dated and hor­ri­ble land­fill that was in La Mu­rada’.

Sr Pi­quer said they are ad­dress­ing the prob­lem of waste with max­i­mum trans­parency.

“The only thing it will do is save money and trans­port emis­sions and help to im­prove sep­a­ra­tion for re­cy­cling,” he said.
