Fewer butts on the beach

DOG-ENDS: Should go into ashtrays, not the sand.

ALFAZ is stepping up its Eco L’Alfas campaign by giving out ashtrays on the Raco de l’Albir beach.

The town hall, together with the SAV street-cleaning and rubbish collection concessionary, has taken the campaign to the water’s edge. “Our cleaning and beach maintenance services do a great job and we have one of the cleanest coasts in Spain,” said Alfaz’s Health councillor Dolores Albero. “That’s made clear by our 30 consecutive years of Blue Flags.”

The town hall wants to go even further by reducing the number of cigarette ends that are stubbed out on the beaches by giving out cone-shaped, lidded ashtrays that can be stuck in the sand, said Albero.

The campaign was launched last June, but this latest phase was deliberately planned to coincide with the busiest part of the high season. The entire campaign has cost €13,000, but the outlay has been met by SAV.
