15 million euros "to improve waste treatment in Fuerteventura".

Contracts are awarded to modernize the management of Zurita, selective collection with more than 1,000 new containers and transport from clean points.

In a press release from Coalición Canaria that came to our newsroom, the nationalists affirm that "Fuerteventura is moving towards a more sustainable model in waste management thanks to the work of the councilors of Coalición Canaria in the Cabildo de Fuerteventura. In this way, it has been awarded a package of contracts that, among all are around an investment of about 15 million euros and will improve the treatment of waste at the island level. "

 

The councilors Lola García and Pedro Martínez define these projects "as fundamental to meet the objectives set by the Territorial Waste Plan, making Fuerteventura a benchmark as a model of sustainable and circular consumption".

 

"Thanks to the work of the Contracting Department and the Waste area, today the award of the new Zurita Management has been completed, for more than 5 million euros, which is added to the award of the new service of collection and transport of waste of light packaging and paper-cardboard in the six municipalities of the Island. This will allow the installation of more than 1,000 side-loading containers that were acquired by the Cabildo from the management of Pedro Martínez in the Waste area. The objective is to offer the island a faster, more efficient collection and increasing the frequency, "they explain.

 
According to Lola García, "these two projects went out to tender for more than 11 million euros, an investment that is essential to modernize waste management in Fuerteventura. All this work has been possible thanks to the coordinated management between the Contracting department and the Waste area".

This is all well and good if the public use the recycling bins but they don't the amount of card, glass and plastic in the grey bins in our area is appalling.

Management is a great believer almost compulsive about recycling as are most people and we try, but when you tool up to the bins and there is plastic and glass all-around the bins because they have not been emptied it becomes a chore.
To me drinking responsibly means do not spill it.

More than 2 million euros are invested to seal the discharge cell number 2 of the Zurita Environmental Complex

The president of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, Sergio Lloret, and the vice president Juan Nicolás Cabrera have moved today, March 15, to the Environmental Complex of Zurita to visit the discharge cell number 2, which will be sealed soon after exhausting its useful life. The contract to undertake the works has already been awarded to the company CORORASA S.L. for more than two million euros.



President Sergio Lloret highlighted the importance of this work "to modernize the Zurita Environmental Complex and continue advancing in the commitments of sustainability and revaluation of waste, always in favor of a more effective and sustainable management of them".

"Today it is a reality what was promised from the Insular Institution, which is to adapt this Environmental Complex to the sustainability and adequate management that the Administration must make of waste on the island," said Juan Nicolás Cabrera.

The winning company will carry out the degassing, sealing and closure of cell number two of the complex, in order to minimize the effects on the environment and integrate it into the environment in which it is located.

The cell was built in 2001, and once its useful life is exhausted, it is definitively sealed and closed. The project is part of the Special Territorial Waste Plan of Fuerteventura and includes the revegetation of the environment to minimize the landscape impact. The total area to be sealed covers 73,338.04 m2.

In addition, "the closure of cell 2, with the work of waterproofing, degassing and sealing with topsoil, will guarantee maximum environmental integration," said Lloret.

This is one more action within those planned by the Island Administration "to modernize the facilities of the Zurita Environmental Complex and improve waste management".

"From the Cabildo of Fuerteventura we have found many important problems to solve on the island, including those related to the Zurita Environmental Complex. Fortunately, the works are already underway and at a good pace, as part of the Insular Institution's commitment to sustainability, which necessarily involves proper management of the waste generated," said Lloret.
