BEACH-GOERS in Motril will be waving waste goodbye with the new service launched by the town Council.
On Sunday (July 12), Mayor of Motril, Flor Almon, together with deputy major and head of the Costa Tropical cleaning services LIMEDECO, Francisco Sanchez-Cantalejo, presented the craft which is to turn Motril’s coasts squeaky clean.
The boat, named ‘Motril 1’, will clean the coastline three times per week during July and August. It is estimated that it will collect more than 1,500 kilos of waste during this summer.
Mayor Almon remarked that not only will this boat rid coasts of solid waste, but also of jellyfish when they are present in the waters.
“It is important to raise awareness amongst citizens to contribute in keeping beaches clean, as well as water,” stressed the Mayor, adding: “It is everybody’s job, and we can all co-operate.”
Mr Sanchez explained that the boat will patrol along the waters off Playa del Cable, Playa de Poniente and Playa Granada.
