LAS LAGUNAS municipal theatre is hosting the first Mijas Recycling Gala on Friday April 24, at 6pm.
The gala is the final stage of a campaign started by the council in January to raise schoolchildren’s awareness of the need to recycle, in which more than 1,000 have taken part.
“Mijas is a leading recycler and it’s not strange to hear youngsters reminding their parents to recycle. This is what the campaign aimed for, to ensure that every local citizen knows how important it is to separate and recycle their waste,” explained councillor for waste, Jose Maria Moreno.
During the gala, students will be given prizes and the campaign’s mascot Reciclon will be presented.
“They’re all winners, so they will all get prizes: schools will be given sports equipment and students will all receive a gift,” Moreno said.
