The mayor of Environmental Education, Ginés Desiderio Navarro, has unveiled the project "Give life to your waste", developed by the Department with the dual objective of curbing desertification and helping to reduce illegal landfills.
Two serious environmental problems that exist in our municipality. The mechanics of the project- explained the mayor- is very simple: "every citizen who takes waste to the Clean Point of the City Council of Águilas will be able to take, free of charge, native forest trees (Aleppo pine, stone pine, elm, carob, fig, etc.) for repopulation.
" With this particular "barter" what is intended to be achieved is, on the one hand, raising public awareness of the use of the Clean Point and thus avoiding the abandonment of waste in our environment, with the consequent environmental and visual impact that it entails, and, on the other hand, that citizens get involved in the reforestation of our municipality by creating small oases to prevent desertification from continuing to advance in our town.
