I have recently returned from a holiday in Puerto Pollensa, we have stayed before and enjoy it. However I noticed an article in your newspaper entitled Just what has happened to Puerto Pollensa and in a small but important way can sympathise with this. We stayed in an apartment near the corner of Carrer de Pere Melia (near Trios restaurant) and every morning at about 5.30am the large Recycle bins, not the domestic bins, were emptied by a contractor with more noise than I can describe. Sometimes another collection would be made around 7.30am with exactly the same noise. It was impossible to sleep through and would be heard for many streets around. Who wants to be woken at 5.30am every morning on their holidays? To verify if it was just me being over sensitive I spoke to other holiday makers in nearby apartments. I will not repart exactly what they said but their views were more forthright than mine and several said they would not be returning. Clearly the collecting company have a route at that time of the morning so you can multiply by 5 or 6 other collecting points with similar noise at a similar time effecting people in the same way. People who may not visit again. A small amount of thought could let holiday makers sleep until 8.00am and send people home wishing to come back to Puerto Pollensa another year which is not the case at the moment.
What has happened to Port de Pollença?
