Blogs in this series

Life in Culebrón is a very British view of life in a small village in Alicante province, my experience of Spain, of Spaniards and sometimes of the other Britons who live nearby. The tabs beneath the header photo link to other blogs written whilst I was living in other parts of Spain, to my articles written for the now defunct TIM magazine and to my most recent photo albums.

Bin and gone

I hear that in the UK it's only MENSA members who have a chance of keeping track of which rubbish has to be put out on what day and date - Tuesday for the organic stuff, every third Friday for household waste etc.

Here in Spain there are no household collections. There are big containers dotted all over the place though. Round Pinoso the basic green jobs are for general stuff then there are the recycling bins - yellow ones for containers, blue for paper and light green for glass. You have the responsibility of getting the stuff to the bins.

The general rubbish is picked up overnight in urban areas and maybe two or three times a week in rural areas. The recycling bins are cleared less frequently.

It's a simple but effective system.
