The big clean up

Now that we have more visitors to La Pedrera as a result of the opening of  Ruta Alquibla, there has been a noticeable increase in the amount of litter.

In an ideal world, everyone would take their bottles and plastic bags home with them but sadly we no longer live in that sort of world.

We know that plastic waste is a real danger to wildlife which is why environmental organisations are putting their weight behind this initiative.

This is not a problem confined to Bigastro. Throughout the country teams will be meeting up on the 15th June to clear up their areas of natural beauty.

All that you are asked to do is give up one hour of your time between 7:30pm and 8:30pm to help clean up the leisure zone.

As the slogan says, "we are part of the problem and part of the solution". 

NB You may have noticed a team of workers in yellow vests cleaning up the roundabouts. This is an annual campaign for which Bigastro receives funding. In time they will cover the whole of the town and clean up verges pathways, parks etc including those in our urbanisation.

Maybe forget the roundabout clean up Villa Andrea now. Just had family visiting embarrassed by the overflowing bins and the park is nothing but a dog toilet and the problem continues all the way into the village. Dog owners please pick up after them and council clean up, no way could this attract a tourist to walk up to the Pedera from the village. The first thing to greet them are the rubbish and the derelict houses. We have always loved Bigastro but sadly we seem very forgotten.
