Fuengirola to spend a million euros putting rubbish containers underground
  • The council wants to improve "the look and feel" of the town's streets

Over 80 rubbish containers on the streets of Fuengirola are to be put inside 23 specially built underground units.

Fuengirola council says it is to spend a million euros, taken from an underspend on its 2016 budget, “with the aim of improving the look and feel” of the town's streets.

The tender document was published in December and, once a contractor is approved, the work should be finished within five months.

The containers being replaced with underground depositories to collect organic waste, paper and cardboard, glass and plastic are located in different parts of the municipality.
