Construction of a recycling point for household waste.
On 9th March 2018, the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning for Andalucia (La Consejería de Medio Ambiente y Ordenación del Territorio) announced it has allocated a budget of €629,501 to construct a recycling point for the collection of municipal solid waste in Torredonjimeno, Jaén. A tender for the work has already been issued.
This facility will have a capacity to treat 7,630 tonnes of garbage annually and benefit a population of around 13,874 inhabitants.
The centre will be equipped to receive various waste including pruning and gardening debris, household and vehicle oil waste, batteries, X-ray photography equipment, furniture, electrical and electronic equipment, fluorescent bulbs, ink cartridges and printer toner, textiles, paper and cardboard, glass, packaging, scrap metals and liquid waste (paints, solvents, varnishes, dyes, etc).
The work will be co-financed by investment from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (Fondo Europeo Agrícola de Desarrollo Rural).
The construction of the facility is part of the Territorial Plan of Management of Non-Hazardous Waste of Andalucia 2010-2019. Once completed, the facility will be managed by the local council.
