Campaign Depends on EVERYONE
The Mesa del Tabaco is committed to caring for the environment and during this summer, as on previous occasions, has launched the campaign ‘Depends on EVERYONE´, to make citizens aware of the importance of responsible behaviour; providing them with the means to collect their waste after a day at the beach so that it can be disposed of properly.
30,000 waste bags and 30,000 reusable ashtrays will be distributed throughout Spain with the collaboration of the Unión de Estanqueros, Hostelería de España and Asociación Ambiente Europeo.
DEPOSIT THE WASTE INTO ITS PROPER PLACE. When you leave the beach, don't forget to separate your waste and deposit each one in its corresponding recycling container whenever possible.
• Where do I put the disposable ashtray?
After disposing of cigarette butts in the waste bin, the ashtray should be placed in the paper/cardboard bin. Remember that it is a reusable ashtray, and we encourage you to use it during your whole holiday.
• How to dispose of the waste bag?
If your bag contains different types of waste, whenever possible, separate them and dispose of them into the appropriate bins. The bag should be placed into the paper/cardboard bin after urse.
