Today, the Mazarrón Ecopark, located in the Pedreras Viejas area, reopens its doors after the closure motivated by the State of Alarm. The schedule is the same as before its temporary closure, that is, from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 5 to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Due to the health alert, no more than one vehicle may simultaneously stay on the Ecopark grounds and only two people per vehicle.
In addition, the measures on physical distance and hygiene recommended by the health authorities and the use of mandatory masks must be respected.
In this selective waste collection facility, citizens can deposit free of charge those less common waste, which have no place in the containers installed on public roads. They can also make use of the Ecopark, and always free of charge those shops, offices and services whose waste production and nature of these, can be considered similar to the waste generated in private homes.
The Councilor for the Environment, Plácida Gómez, has urged citizens “to renew our commitment to the environment and make use of this facility” since “with the current pandemic, we have seen how the effect of human beings on nature is very large, verifying in these weeks of confinement how natural spaces have been regenerated in record time. Something of which we must be aware, improving our relationship with the environment and betting decisively on a real ecological transition that helps us face the challenges that the world poses to us in this matter ”.
