Mijas town hall has issued a 2.4-million-euro fine to Urbaser, the contractor responsible for refuse collection and street cleaning in the town.

According to SUR sources, the fine has been issued for not "respecting the contract".

According to the council, Urbaser has not been putting in the arranged resources, agreed when the company won the contract earlier this year, to carry out the service, nor had the company carried out the improvements promised.

"The collection of rubbish is a fundamental part of maintaining a good quality of life for all residents," said the town hall while Urbaser refused to comment.
