Call 971 36 19 63 to arrange collection.
All professional gardeners must take their client’s garden rubbish to the Mahón or Milà tips.
The unauthorized disposal of rubbish in any other spot will be fined with up to 600€.
SEPTIC TANKS AND POOL OVERFLOW WATER
It is very important for all of us to ensure that our septic tanks are working efficiently, as this frequently causes very unpleasant conditions not just for you but also your neighbours and even the condition of the roads and pavements. If you see anything of concern please report it to the police.
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are legally NOT allowed to empty your swimming pool wash onto the public roads. This needs to be piped back into your own septic tank or recycled for watering your garden.
NOISY OR NEGLECTED DOGS
This is a constant dilemma. In the event of a dog barking too much at unsociable times, please report to the police. Any wilful neglect or cruelty to animals can also be reported:
