Dirt and bad smells, a summer classic

Dirt and bad smells, a summer classic
In Olula del Río, the cleaning of the pavements does not last more than four days.

Dirt in several municipalities in the area is not a new problem, which increases with the arrival of summer. Dirt can be seen wherever you look and it is not always the responsibility, at least not exclusively, of the municipalities.

Streets, squares and avenues are cleaned and this can be seen when municipal employees get to work and scrub the public spaces, a cleanliness that most of the time lasts little or nothing.

Bottles, excrement, bags, handkerchiefs, a little less than masks and even urine offer an unaesthetic appearance and nauseating smells that increase with the high temperatures.

Another problem is the waste that should be destined for the clean points that exist in towns such as Albox, Arboleas, Huércal Overa and Vélez Rubio.

In the last assembly of the Consorcio de la basura, it was approved the contracting of an external company to collect only the armchairs, heaters, caravans and fridges that are often found next to the containers destined for solid urban waste. The collection of these items takes place a couple of days a month in each village, but some people seem unwilling to wait. In the aforementioned assembly, the municipalities governed by the PSOE abstained from supporting the proposal, despite having the same difficulties as the others because it is a problem that is not a party problem, but simply one of neighbourhood interest.

Unscrupulous people throw, as in this case, cans of industrial paint on the Camino a las Cacicas, in Albox.
But none of this will solve the problem without the cooperation of the neighbours and a real capacity to sanction the unconscionable.

It is everyone’s obligation to make visible those who, because they do not go to a clean point, throw rubble or paint into the watercourses, plots of land or terraces. Those who do not know how to or do not want to take responsibility for their pets or vandals who, taking cover at night, break street furniture or do their business anywhere, behaviour that they certainly do not do at home.
