The Consorcio Vega Baja Sostenible has signed today a previous protocol of collaboration with the City of Dolores for the cession of a plot, located in the industrial estate of the municipality, to house a transfer plant. With this act facilitates, therefore, the presentation of a public initiative to develop one of the facilities that the region needs.
The president of the Consortium, Manuel Pineda, has specified that the plot is compatible urbanistically and has all the positive technical reports. Thus, he explained that what has been signed is a price protocol that will later become an agreement “for which a management project has to be presented by Vaersa and that must have all the reports of the technical committee and the approval of the Consortium, guided by the reports that the technicians sign. ” The president of the consortium has appreciated the will of the City of Dolores and the one shown a few days ago by Orihuela “to be able to have two transfer plants.”
The land has received several technical visits for the location of a transfer plant. The neighbors of Dolores have also been able to visit facilities of this type, proving their good environmental behavior. With this protocol, which will be joined soon the corresponding management project, the Consortium joins the will of Dolores to Orihuela, for the execution of the two transfer plants that at least our region needs. For its part, the public company Vaersa already has a management project on this very advanced location, with an approximate investment of 800,000 euros.
Also, regarding the processing of the public initiative management project in Dolores, for the transfer plant, the Generalitat has been requested to sell the Vaersa stock so that it can be considered its own means, as well as The Waste Consortium A1 and A3 have already been created, where Vaersa already operates.
For his part, the mayor of Dolores and vice president of the Consortium, Joaquin Hernandez, said that this is the opportunity to “banish the prejudices that exist in our region in relation to the subject of garbage,” and stressed that “these plants they are necessary for Dolores and for all the municipalities of the Vega Baja, and I would never sign anything against the benefit of my people. ” In this sense, Hernandez pointed out that the plant to be built in the town will be adapted to European regulations, equipped with state-of-the-art technology “with biofilters so that if any odor is released, it does not go outside” .
The protocol signed today between the Consortium and Dolores will be agreed upon, prior to the pertinent procedures, at the time that the corresponding transfer plant management project is presented and is accepted for processing by the Consortium. The agreement will clearly mark the economic compensation in favor of the municipality of Dolores, with a minimum of 1.2 euros / tn transferred, as well as the payment of taxes, works and hiring of local personnel and the environment close to the facility.

Visits to the Sagunto plant
Both Manuel Pineda and Joaquín Hernández have encouraged all the residents of the Vega Baja to sign up for the visits that the Consortium organizes to the Sagunto transfer plant to see first-hand how these facilities work. Hernandez has insisted that “who does not know a plant of this type can not comment, so I encourage anyone who wants to make this visit, and both the president of the Consortium and I will be happy to accompany them.” The Mayor of Toledo sees in the installation of his municipality “an opportunity to generate employment, wealth and support for measures of care for the environment” and considered that when the possibility of assigning land was raised “I was forced to give up a plot municipal in our town that meets all the requirements, and I did it based on the principle of solidarity that should prevail among all the towns of the Vega Baja.
