Arona Recycling

March 3, 2008

 Arona Council’s environment department has set up collection points at the municipality’s cultural centres for recycling mobile phones and used printer, fax and photocopier cartridges.

The new collection points can be found in Valle San Lorenzo, Los Cristianos, Las Galletas, Parque de la Reina and el Fraile and at the civic centre in Cabo Blanco. Environment councillor, Antonio Sosa said the scheme was part of an initiative to establish a system of separating out recoverable waste.

Sosa said as well as cultural and civic centres, collection points would also be set up in schools, sports centres, citizens advice centres, local police stations and council offices. Depending on demand, there will also be containers for other waste including paper and glass.
