  • Locals near the La Ermita industrial estate had become worried about the practice and started secret filming

Two refuse collectors in Marbella have been suspended without pay as a cautionary measure after recent revelations that they may have been throwing rubbish bags into a stream instead of picking them up.

Last week SUR in English reported how locals near the La Ermita industrial estate had become worried about the practice and started secret filming. The recording apparently showed how instead of putting rubbish into their bin lorry, they put around six bags in the stream.

Marbella council continues to investigate the incident.
