Towards a greener Beniel
Seven years ago, Beniel opened the EcoPark, a waste and recycling centre where the public can leave waste that is unsuitable for traditional containers.
Located at Crta. Zeneta, s/n, it is open to the public on Saturday mornings from 9 am to 12 pm.
Opening the EcoPark also prevents uncontrolled waste tipping, which cannot be removed by urban waste collection services. It also stops hazardous waste from ending up in the sewerage systems or posing a risk for operators.
The public can rest assured that it will be removed by authorised managers, who will then recycle or process it. A list of products and maximum amounts accepted per person, per day, and the types of waste that are not accepted is available.
