THE president of Emaya, Palma's municipal water management and street cleaning company, paid a visit yesterday to 30 members of staff who had attended a training course last week on how to handle new machinery which will be operating on the streets of the city as of next month.

President Cristina Cerdó said that the investment the company has made in new cleaning installations will mean that Emaya employees will be keeping Palma free of litter and dirt with machinery which is much more modern and sophisticated than equipment currently being used.

Through the use of a prototype, operatives have learned the correct techniques for safely getting the most efficient results. The course had been staged in Son Pax over a period of two days on 13th and 14th August in two separate sections of three hours each, so that the city cleaners could fit in their normal tours of duty. Instruction was given by handling experts from the machinery manufacturers.

During her visit, Cerdó thanked the staff who had completed their training, saying that their get-up-and-go enthusiasm will mean that they will be able to get right to the heart of their job when the new machinery comes on line next month. She also said that the commitment of Emaya staff was paying off, as has been illustrated by Emaya receiving the internationally prestigious “Silver Broom” award for its dedication to ensuring that the city environment is as clean as can be expected by the people who live there.
