Municipally owned Benissa Impuls is maintaining a minimum service, cleaning the town’s streets and collecting rubbish.
While practically all the local population remain in self-isolation in their homes owing to the State of alarm, workers are still needed on the front line, Benissa town hall pointed out.
“They all contribute in one way or another to improving the situation, as does Benissa Impuls which has been working tirelessly since day one to guarantee the municipality’s health standards,” said Isador Molla, councilor responsible for the public sector company.
“Operatives have also disinfected different zones of the town with chemical products to prevent transmitting the virus to the people who, complying with government requirements, need to leave their homes,” Molla said.
Meanwhile, Benissa mayor Arturo Poquet expressed his pride in being able to offer these services during the crisis and, what was more, using the municipality’s own resources.
Molla also called on the local population to facilitate the work of Benissa Impuls employees working on their behalf.
“Although their work continues with absolute normality, we need the public to act responsibly,” the councilor said
“Benissa residents are very public-spirited with a great sense of community. Together we are going to keep out town clean,” he declared.
Molla also explained that although the Ecoparque would be open from Monday to Friday at the usual times, his department had decided not to open Benissa’s coastal Punto Limpio recycling points.
“We have done this to prevent uncontrolled fly-tipping,” he said.
