Six operatives from the Balearic Coastal Demarcation department have collected 60 tonnes of rubbish and rubble from Lake Esperanza in Alcudia during the last few months, one of the projects to which the Spanish Ministry for the Environment has given 50'000 euros. According to the Spanish Government's Delegate to the Balearics, Ramon Socias, speaking yesterday, the cleaning and refurbishment of the lake has been done “almost 100 percent” by hand as machines could cause damage to the algae and the Poseidon grounds. The final objective of this initiative is to recover the area for leisure use, and it is part of the works being done by the Ministry for the recuperation and improvement of the coast. Socias said that among the rubbish which has been brought to the surface were a camping vehicle, chairs, armchairs, iron objects and building rubble.
