pruning second oliva life remains

A second life to the pruning remains in La Oliva

Radio Sintonia:

A second life to the pruning remains in La Oliva.

The Department of the Environment of the City of La Oliva, together with the areas of Cleaning and Gardens, directed by David Fajardo, Rubén González and Verónica Saavedra, respectively, has recovered an initiative for the reuse of vegetable waste, giving a second life to the pruning remains of municipal green areas so that neighbors can reuse it in their own gardens, or agricultural and livestock farms.



The councilman of the area, David Fajardo, explained that the reuse of these plant remains has several benefits. In the first place, "we prevent them from being lost when they are transferred to the island's environmental complex, and this means significant economic savings, since the management of this waste entails a fee that involves an expense to the city council, and therefore to the neighbors".

And secondly, this organic material can be transformed into compost, or used to oxygenate farmland, as mulch for animals on farms, or to prevent weeds from growing in fruit orchards. Therefore, Fajardo invited citizens "to contact us and request the collection. Giving pruning debris a second life benefits the environment and people."

Other municipal areas have also participated in the initiative. David Fajardo thanked the Cleaning area, directed by Rubén González, for their collaboration in the classification of the remains, and the operators who have made an effort to remove any non-vegetable element before shredding. He also recognized the Councilor for Gardens, Verónica Saavedra, for her collaboration in the collection work.

The Councilor for Jardines added that with the new contract that is in the awarding phase, the City of La Oliva plans to "incorporate next year its own shredder, so that this initiative can become regular in 2024," said Verónica Saavedra.

The entire government group is committed to "changing the mentality from an environmental point of view, moving towards a balance between residents, tourism and the use and enjoyment of the territory. And for this goal, the use of waste must undoubtedly play an important role," concluded David Fajardo.

During the last few weeks, the Department of the Environment has commissioned a specialized company, Compost Majorero, to shred the pruning remains from the municipal gardening, which from now on can be requested to be removed by interested people.

To do this, simply send an email with your contact details to the address medioambiente@laoliva.es, and it will then be the Department of the Environment who will contact the applicants to coordinate the delivery on a first-come, first-served basis and based on stock.
