The Mijas councillor for public safety and security, Juan Carlos Cuevas, has announced that the Local Police forces has been enforcing an awareness campaign to ensure compliance with municipal regulations regarding waste disposal, with a special emphasis on the need for dog owners to clean up after their pets.

A dozen plainclothes police officers have recently been on duty throughout the municipality to monitor compliance with the byelaws, which have also included a campaign to prevent rubbish bags from being left on the streets instead of being deposited in the correct containers, and to ensure that deposit times are respected, all of which, the councillor said, “can lead to very high fines”.

Cuevas pointed out that since last November, when the campaign was launched, more than 440 complaints have been filed for non-compliance with the regulations.

“In recent months we have issued specific orders so that members of the public are offered information by the Local Police. In particular, we ask dog owners for their commitment when it comes to collecting faeces from public roads. We want to raise awareness among citizens that keeping the municipality clean is everyone's responsibility,” Cuevas said.
