Councilman Antonio Public Services-Puche, has denied the allegations of the environmental organization in relation to lack of permits to the municipal dump
Ecologists in Action, through a press statement, explained that "it was only legalized in 2005, as stated by the mayor, the dump by the region. What happened is that the City received environmental clearance  . But this is just one of the steps necessary to finally obtain a business license as a waste manager. And the business license was not obtained. "
And the clearest evidence of this is that they explain, "in March 2009 after an inspection at the dump, opened disciplinary proceedings to the General (a company that has managed so far) because the activity was being out without the required authorization (SCA sanctioning 57/09) "
Therefore, they assert, "is absolutely true that it denounces. This is the tip of Yecla not only takes years running without being authorized, but never has been."
Councilman Utilities also wanted to refute the statement by the group showing a report on landfill of Ecologists in Action  March this year that, in the words of the popular mayor, "did not mention any of the facts now exposed. "
The reason is simple, they explain, is that "it is after the submission of the report when we know exactly that the tip of Yecla was illegal. That is why in April 2010 when we pointed this fact in writing to the SEPRONA, to the Ministry of Agriculture and Water, and even before the council itself is part of Puche "
For environmentalists, "instead of trying to deny our organization, it would be desirable given the city of Yecla explanation of how it has been possible for all these years such a disastrous management of the municipal dump"
Finally, Ecologists in Action emphasizes "the urgent need for regional planning in this area and in coordination with local governments, precisely to avoid being the first local government in violating the law, when they should be the example for society and the business world. "
