The Guardia Civil's Seprona division, which has responsibilities for environmental protection enforcement, is drawing attention to the enormous amount of rubbish that is dumped in country areas.
Seprona accepts that there has always been dumping but adds that there are now means of recycling for different types of material. Nevertheless, the waste keeps appearing, which Seprona attributes to people simply being irresponsible and behaving in an uncivil manner.
As a consequence, road sides in the countryside can be littered with various items of household junk as well hundreds of kilos of building materials. Population growth in recent years can explain some of this increased waste, but Seprona is particularly critical of builders. They charge customers for taking away waste and then just dump it. In fact, most of the rubbish is from building work.
