Rubbish in AdejeThere is no solution in sight for the striking binmen in Adeje.

The strike is now in its 5th day. Rubbish continues to build up on streets despite the skeleton service ordered by the government on health grounds.

The striking binmen took the extraordinary step yesterday by filing a formal complaint against 20 hotels and businesses in the resorts for ‘arranging their own refuse collections’ to beat the strike.

The situation is particularly bad in Playa Paraiso and Callao Salvaje, where locals complain they have had just one collection by the skeleton service since the strike began on Monday.
