OVER 260 PEOPLE TOOK PART IN THE SECOND COASTAL CLEAN-UP CAMPAIGN
Almost 80 large bags of rubbish and debris were removed

Tuesday 8th May 2018

JAVEA NEWS | Coastal Clean Up 2018

The Second Coastal Clean-Up Day, organised by the Ayuntamiento de Xàbia, took place last Sunday and some 265 people took part in the event with many people travelling to the coast from as far away as Sagunto, Alcoi, Paterna, Puzol, Valencia, Gandía and Alzira as well as Dénia, Oliva and Teulada to help clean up some 25 kilometres of coastline between Cova Tallada in the north and Granadella in the south.

As with the first edition in 2017, the coast was zoned into areas of responsibility and assigned to groups coordinated by staff from the Department of Tourism including diving clubs such as Cabo la Nao, Puerto de Jávea, Paradive, Diving Jávea, La Rana, Mardays and Pelicar, activity companies such as Siesta Advisor, Kayak Jávea, OK Aventuras and Xàbia Activa as well as Club Náutica de Jávea and Marina Nou Fontana. In addition, the campaign coincided with the activities of the "Plastic Patrol", a group of residents who mobilise weekly to clear the coast of rubbish.

Also taking part was the Centro Excursionista de Xàbia (CEX) activity centre and the Institut de Recerca Oceanogràfica de Xàbia (IROX), two groups who worked with children from the 'Escoleta de Montaña' and students from IES Número 1 during the morning. And everyone was supported by volunteers from the Protección Civil, officers from the Policía Local de Xàbia, the Fishermen's Guild, the Fundació Oceanogràfic and Department of Environment.

According to initial reports from the Department of Tourism, a total of 78 large sacks of rubbish and debris were removed, including plastics items, polystyrene packaging, iron and lead weights as well as a number of tyres and the ubiquitous shopping trolly. The general feeling of the participants was that, despite the amount of rubbish still being thrown onto the beaches and into the sea, the general feeling has been that the coast was cleaner than the previous year. Mayor José Chulvi, who is also the head of the Department of Tourism, thanked the involvement of everyone in a campaign which has the objective of improving the environment as well as promote sustainable tourism in Xàbia.


265 PERSONAS PARTICIPAN EN LA II JORNADA POPULAR DE LIMPIEZA DEL LITORAL DE XÀBIA
En total se extrajeron 78 sacos grandes de residuos

La II Jornada Popular de Limpieza del Litoral organizada ayer por el Ayuntamiento de Xàbia contó con un gran respaldo con la participación de 265 personas, entre ellas muchas llegadas de otros municipios como  Sagunto, Paterna, Valencia, Puzol, Dénia, Teulada, Alzira, Oliva, Gandia o Alcoi. Al igual que en la primera edición, se  zonificó todo el litoral y se adjudicó un área a cada grupo, coordinados por el personal de Turismo, clubes de buceo como Cabo la Nao, Puerto de Jávea, Paradive, Diving Jávea, La Rana, Mardays o Pelicar, empresas de turismo activo como Siesta Advisor, Kayak Jávea, OK Aventuras o Xàbia Activa y el Club Náutico y Marina Nou Fontana. Fuera de organización se coincidió con la “plastic patrol”, un grupo de residentes que semanalmente se movilizan para limpiar la costa.

Y también se involucraron el Centro Excursionista (CEX) y el Institut de Recerca Oceanogràfica de Xàbia (IROX), dos colectivos que trabajaron con los niños y niñas de la Escoleta de Montaña y alumnos del IES Número 1, respectivamente. Además, colaboraron en seguridad e intendencia Protección Civil, la Policía Local, Cruz Roja, Coca Cola, la Cofradía de Pesca, la Fundació Oceanogràfic y la concejalía de Medio Ambiente.

Según el primer balance recopilado por Turismo, en total se extrajeron 78 sacos grandes de basura (sobre todo se recuperaron plásticos, cajas de poliespán, hierros, plomos) y también objetos de mayor tamaño como neumáticos o un carro de la compra. Los participantes señalaron que, a pesar de los residuos que siguen tirándose en las playas y el mar, la sensación general es que la costa estaba más limpia que el año anterior. El alcalde y responsable directo de Turismo, José Chulvi, ha agradecido la gran implicación de la ciudadanía en esta acción colectiva por la mejora del medioambiente y sostenibilidad del turismo y el entorno.
