Prosecutor finds environmental breach at Illegal Nerja Landfill

The Attorney General’s office has reportedly taken action against the La Miel de Nerja ‘illegal’ landfill where unwanted material has been dumped on the site since 1998.

According to reports coming out of Nerja, the towns Urban Planning department has sent an expert to work with the Guardia Civil on the case which goes by the name “Operation Rubbish.”

Located in an old quarry the illegal dump covers an area of 802,000 cubic metres and contains mostly waste dumped by a group of construction companies in Nerja.

Numerous environmental infringements have been found that include breaches against mines, waste, water, protected natural space and a danger of forest fires, all of which pose a risk to the local population.
