With summer fast approaching, Marbella town hall has doubled its float of beach-cleaning machinery, renting seven new tractors and five new specialist machines which were unveiled at El Pinillo on Wednesday.

According to mayor Ángeles Muñoz, “providing a useful service and improving performance” was a priority. She also pointed out that this was only possible thanks to an investment in sanitation of almost a million euros over four years.

“Never in history have we been able to have beach cleaning machines on all 2.7 kilometres of coastline,” added Muñoz.

In total 90 staff will be responsible for the cleanliness of Marbella's beaches this summer.
