Battling the gum

Fuengirola Council is using a new machine, costing 13,500, to remove chewing gum from the pavements in the municipality.

The machine, which uses high-powered jets of water and heat, with temperatures rising to 190 degrees, to remove the unsightly blobs. The machine also works on wax and on graffiti.

Fuengirola is already the holder of the ‘Platinum Broom’, the highest award for cleaning available to municipalities.
