Torrevieja council has missed out on a 100-thousand-euro grant from the Alicante Provincial Council for helping in the costs of transferring rubbish, with mayor José Manuel Dolón blaming a council official for not making sure that a form was sent before he went on holiday. The money was part of a regional subsidy to move rubbish from Torrevieja to a landfill site in Elche, after a court closed a more local side at Abanilla-Orihuela de Proambiente.

It’s not the first time that the council has missed out on provincial money, after they failed to get an application in on time last year, a big grant that would have been used to improve street lighting in Torrevieja.
