Hello All. 

As I am stuck at home I am doing a lot of gardening. However I would like to know where to correctly dispose of vegetation such as leaves, old plants, dead plants etc?

Thanks

I understand that there is an official rubbish disposal plant in Lloret. (See https://www.lloret.cat/seccions/medi-ambient/neteja-viaria-i-residus-1/deixalleria) We live further North & ours has been shut because of the Covid-19 crisis although the area for vegetation disposal remains open, but unattended. As this means we can dispose of vegetation 24/7, it's actually very convenient.

Hope this helps.

Hello.

Yes that is very helpful. Thanks for the information. Would you happen to know if they charge for any disposal or is it a free service?

Thanks in advance.

According to the website "The landfill service is intended for all citizens of the town of Lloret de Mar, registered or with a second home, whether individuals or companies, provided that the waste they wish to deposit does not exceed allowable amounts set by the City". The price list seems to say that you can deposit up to 1 tonne of 'green waste' per month free-of-charge. The website says that the opening hours are:

  • Monday to Friday: 10.30 am - 1.30 pm 4.30 pm - 7.30 pm
  • Saturday: 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • Sundays and public holidays: Closed
but these may be changed in the current circumstances. They will also take all sorts of other waste, from old tyres to old paints and chemicals. (Although the website has multi-lingual options,I personally use Google Chrome as a browser which automatically translates from dozens of original languages into almost anything you care to specify.)
