A total of 60 people check first hand how waste is transferred
The residents of the town of Dolores visited last Saturday the transfer plant of Sagunto and Algimia treatment of Alfara. An activity organized by the Vega Baja Sustainable Consortium and to which can be added all those municipalities in the region that want to know how this type of facility works. In this way, a total of 60 people checked firsthand how the waste from different locations is transferred within the Waste Zoning Plan Consortium C3 / V1.
During the first part of the visit, the discharge of the waste was checked at the Sagunto transfer plant. It was also given as an explanation of the materials that are compacted for later transfer to the treatment plant. Next the neighbors visited the Algimia de Alfara facility in which all kinds of materials are treated, and they saw how the waste is separated and the treatment that each one has. The visitors also had an informative and formative talk about the uses that are given to the materials that are treated in the plant and what part of the waste can not have a treatment.
The mayor of the town, Joaquín Hernández, positively valued this trip “that serves to make people really know how these facilities work.” The mayor assured that “it is important to come and know the process closely and see that a transfer plant does not smell and is totally clean”. In addition Hernandez explained that “the facilities that are put in the region will be even more modern than these since they will be covered and not in the open air, besides being endowed with technology of last generation”.
From the Consorcio Vega Baja Sostenible, these visits are prepared so that the neighbors can see directly how urban waste is managed. The local councils of the region that wish may contact the Consortium to organize this type of activities.
