A war of words has broken out over the island's top beach, Es Trenc, with the Campos council claiming that many kilos of rubbish are dumped there every day. As Es Trenc has been declared a national park there are no rubbish bins which is only making the problem even more pronounced.

To quote Forrest Gump, "stupid is stupid". but we all have to live with them unfortunately. They can not control chucking rubbish out of cars, so without bins, no chance on the beach. Or are they worried about terrorist bombs, catching covid?
I remember earlier in the year when most of Mallorca councils where seemingly obsessed with closing down The beach bars . I believe this beach was mentioned at the time. Many of us commented on that unless you closed out the beach to visitors, having managed amenities was a better option than just having tourists & visitors ramp up with their own supplies, and that rubbish disposal and other human needs waste would become a problem on unmanaged beaches. And greater council intervention would be needed Well I never, guess what’s happened. Regulators can regulate and make rules till the cows come home. Human nature, some folks will not take the rubbish away, they may put it in the 🗑. If one is provided. But the family or group making a living running a bar would provide managed amenities. Keep the place tidy and look after the environment. If it works and Ain’t broke don’t fix it.
