SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Jan. 22 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Governing Council of the Cabildo de La Palma has given the green light to the emergency contracting of a service for the collection, transport and treatment of waste from the construction of the greenhouses affected by the volcano through an authorized manager, in this case the company Martínez Cano Canarias, for a budget of 16,948.80 euros.
The Minister of Services, Nieves Rosa Arroyo, has highlighted that this measure is intended both to support the agricultural sector affected in the Aridane Valley by the eruption, and to guarantee a sustainable treatment of the waste generated by the greenhouses damaged by the volcano.
Nieves Rosa Arroyo recalled that the Cabildo already has a service in operation in Puerto Naos, in the vicinity of the desalination plants, for the collection and transfer of the material from the affected greenhouses (mesh, greenhouse film, polyethylene pipes and metal waste, such as metal pipes and wires).
In this case, the service is aimed at collecting and removing debris from the perimeter walls of the greenhouses of those farms affected by the ash fall, whose structure has collapsed.
For this purpose, a 10 m3 capacity tray will be installed in Puerto de Naos, which will have a set schedule, where the owners of the farms will deliver said waste, which will be transported and treated before being incorporated into the recycling process. The Cabildo will soon announce the hours and specific location of the service.
