(Agencies) The Boletín Oficial de la Provincia (BOP, the official provincial bulletin) recently published the amount residents of San Roque municipality will now have to pay for the collection and treatment of their rubbish. The tariff is> €40 and €35 respectively, a total of €75 a year. Exemptions for families not meeting minimal wage limits are included in the measure.
The new tariffs come into effect on January 1st 2010, an ‘unpopular’ measure given that San Roque residents have not had to pay for the services for the last 10 years. However, it is one of several that Mayor Fernando Palma has established as a way to cover the deficit of the municipality’s financial deficit.
