“Do it the right way – it is up to you” – this the slogan of Teulada Moraira´s awareness campaign against illegal garbage dump. The message will be spread by the press, will be on social media and mupis (posters on the street). We all are responsible for Teulada Moraira´s image and the campaign teaches people how to deal with garbage and the corresponding containers.
A graphic explains what kind of trash goes in which container. The graphic also mentions the Ecopark and what kind of waste we can deposit there. The Ecopark is free of charge and located in the industrial zone of Teulada.
Should you have bulky things, garden waste, paper or cartons there is the municipality’s free pick-up service available. The campaign also reminds people that the communal service for street-cleaning and waste management has the right to fine illegal trash dump with up to 3000 Euros. This sanction has already been implemented.
The municipality continues daily to avoid that garbage containers convert into uncontrolled trash dump places. At one or the other location this is unfortunately already happening, it affects the image of the whole village and a lot of citizens are not happy with such a situation. The campaign is in addition to the already implemented measures such as the local police regularly checking certain strategic locations. The special police unit is in place since last July.
