With this motion, the Municipal Group Citizens Yecla, intends for the autonomous community to launch the pilot program for the collection of organic waste, where our municipality was included and which should be implemented since 2019, in addition to the installation of the brown container for organic waste.
The Yecla Citizens Municipal Group will present a motion that if approved, our city council should develop a Plan to study the strategies necessary to comply with European regulations regarding the management of organic domestic waste, in addition to requiring the Autonomous Community to put underway of the pilot program of self-composting, which according to the counseling should have been implemented in early 2019.
The Waste Plan of the Region, of the General Directorate of Environment and Mar Menor, for municipalities with more than 10,000 inhabitants, proposes the installation of the fifth â€śbrownâ€ť container in the urban center.
To comply with European regulations.
Although Europe has marked the deadline January 2024 for all countries that make up this Union, make proper management of their organic household waste.
On May 18, 2018, in the draft bill, the Law 22/2011 of July 28, on Waste and Contaminated Soils, is amended.
The obligation to establish the separate collection of bio-waste in the municipal waste management service is advanced, for municipalities with more than 5000 inhabitants (37 municipalities in the Region of Murcia, including Yecla), as of December 31, 2020.
In addition, Our Municipality was included, together with four other Municipalities, in May 2018, in a Pilot program of the Region of Murcia.
So that citizens gradually adapt to this new way of separating waste.
That according to the Ministry of Environment would be tendered from November 2018, so that in 2019 the different ways of working organic waste and extending them to other municipalities were tested.
Specifically Yecla was selected, from among the five Municipalities, for the pilot program of self-composting.
In 2020 our City Council will not only have to have developed the Pilot program, established for Yecla, within the Waste Plan of the Region, of the General Directorate of Environment and Mar Menor.
But the new brown containers and the logistics systems necessary for the collection of this waste will have to be implanted.
