the company for which there is an agreement for the
management of recyclable waste collected from the special containers
which in the case of paper and card are blue in colour.
This amount is in addition to the payments made annually
in arrears by the company for the amount of recyclable
waste collected each month which totalled some 175,000
euros in 2013.

for contributing to the better management of waste in
the municipality and encouraged everyone to continue
recycling. Jávea has received these "greater
efficiency" financial rewards for some years, an
amount which varies each year according to the amount
of recyclable waste collected and several parameters
