XÀBIA MARKS WORLD CLEANING DAY WITH RUBBISH COLLECTION CAMPAIGN
It will take place on Saturday 15th September and concentrate of Santa Llúcia and the river Gorgos

Wednesday 12th September 2018

JAVEA NEWS | World Cleanup Day

Xàbia will be joining the global movement to clean up our world this weekend, a campaign that will see millions of volunteers in some 150 countries across the planet come together with the objective of cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from beaches, rivers, forests and towns.

The Department of Services at the Ayuntamiento de Xàbia has ensured that Xàbia will be involved this Saturday 15th September in a series of actions organised with the collaboration with different organisations and associations such as the Fishermen's Guild, IROX, AMJASA, Protección Civil, the Cruz Roja and various private businesses.

The cleaning will concentrate on the surroundings of the Santa Llúcia hill working along a circular route starting in Calle Langreo and along the river Gorgos at two points: the Vía Augusta and Calle Verona next to the IES No1 high school and the area around the La Vibro cement factory between Camí Fontanelles and Camí Cabanes close to the Carretera de Gata. Volunteers will meet at the three cleaning areas at 10.00am.

Councillor Kika Mata (Services) expressed her thanks for all the participants "for their generous collaboration on a subject as sensitive as the cleaning of public spaces". She explained that citizen awareness is becoming greater every time and that, along with the efforts of the municipal council, the objective is to enjoy a more pleasant and sustainable environment.

Moisés Erades, representative from the Fishermen's Guild, added that a large part of the rubbish that is thrown into the ditches, the streets and the riverbed ends up in the sea and greatly harms the marine life. By acting on land, this can be prevented as much as possible. Katia Dimitrie from the Slow Life group said that it was important to act on the conscience of the people, to encourage individual responsibility and stop thinking that someone else will come to solve the problem. "We are the consumers, the residents, who have to take action here and now".

The day will end with snacks for all the participants in the Ruirau d'Arnauda in Parque Montaner above the Plaza de la Constitución where the provision of the snacks in single-use containers will be avoided as much as possible.

The World Cleanup Day movement was born some ten years ago in Estonia when 4% of the population came out to clean the entire country of illegally dumped waste in just a matter of hours. This initiative captured the imaginations of people worldwide, inspiring them to follow suit and try and clean up their own countries. The movement has grown to become one of the biggest of its kind in the world, uniting people from all corners of the planet to work together in cleaning the world of trash. But it's not just about cleaning up the rubbish thrown by irresponsible citizens but also about raising global awareness to end the waste epidemic which is threatening to engulf the planet.

XÀBIA PARTICIPA EN LA JORNADA MUNDIAL DE LIMPIEZA CON UNA CAMPAÑA DE RECOGIDA POPULAR DE RESIDUOS
Será el sábado 15 de septiembre y se actuará en el entorno de Santa Llúcia y el río Gorgos

Xàbia se suma al movimiento mundial de limpieza que se celebrará el próximo sábado 15 de septiembre con una campaña popular de recogida de residuos. Esta acción la organiza el Ayuntamiento, a través de la concejalía de Servicios, en colaboración con diferentes entidades como la Cofradía de Pescadores, IROX, Amjasa, Protección Civil, Cruz Roja y diversas entidades privadas.

Se actuará sobre el entorno de Santa Llúcia, en la ruta circular que arranca en la calle Langreo, y sobre el cauce del río Gorgos, a su paso por la Vía Augusta – C/Verona junto al IES Nº1 – y a su paso por la carretera de Gata, entre el camí Fontanelles y camí Cabanes, junto a la fábrica de cementos La Vibro. En los tres casos la hora de encuentro de los voluntarios será las 10.00 horas.

La concejala de Servicios, Kika Mata, ha querido agradecer a todos los participantes “su generosa colaboración en un tema tan sensible como es la limpieza de espacios públicos. Cada vez el grado de conciencia ciudadana es mayor y eso, junto al esfuerzo municipal, es la clave para disfrutar de un entorno no solo más agradable sino también más sostenible”.

Junto a la concejala han estado el representante de la Cofradía de Pescadores, Moisés Erades, y Katia Dimitrie, en representación de la agrupación Slow Life, dos de los colaboradores principales. Moisés ha recordado que “una gran parte de los residuos que vemos en las cunetas, las calles y el cauce del río, por supuesto, acaba en el mar. Actuando sobre la tierra evitemos que esta gran cantidad de desperdicios acabe en nuestras aguas y perjudique a la vida marina”. Para Katia es urgente “actuar sobre la conciencia de las personas, asumir nuestra responsabilidad individual y dejar de pensar que alguien vendrá a resolver nuestros problemas. Somos los consumidores, los vecinos, quienes hemos de tomar medidas aquí y ahora”.

La jornada finalizará con un aperitivo para los participantes en el Riurau d'Arnauda en el que se tratarán de evitar todos los envases de un solo uso.
