Two boats are to be stationed permanently on the Benalmadena and Torremolinos coasts to keep the waters clean. The Western Costa del Sol community presented 11 boats on Wednesday, all of which can be mobilised if needed.
Eight boats will work in the western Costa del Sol area, mostly in beach and other coastal areas such as entrances to ports, up to six nautical miles out to sea. The local councils have financed these boats, with 380,000 euros. The rubbish collected will be deposited in seven containers along the coast, each with a capacity for seven cubic metres.
