| Bullas launches several initiatives to promote 3Rs among merchants and consumers of weekly municipal markets | Taking advantage of the enactment of a Municipal Bando to regulate security and protection measures against COVID-19 for the return of the weekly markets, the Consistory included an additional provision where the holders of the stalls were reminded of the obligation to collect all the waste that generated as a result of their commercial activity during the market and deposit them in the corresponding containers. During the days prior to the first flea market, during the de-escalation period, all participating merchants received a copy of said Bando and on May 26 they were visited by the municipal technician who reminded them, while setting up their stall, of the obligation and environmental need to correctly separate the waste generated during your work.
In recognition of their collaboration, the Bullas City Council is distributing environmental responsibility signs regarding the management of their waste.
These hallmarks recognize the mobile establishment as "a stall that separates its waste for proper recycling." On the other hand, the circular economy takes advantage of the materials from which the waste is made to manufacture new products, but, before recycling, it promulgates the reduction and reuse of products to prevent them from being waste.
Committed to it, merchants will also be thanked for their excellent collaboration with cleaning and waste management, delivering them, during the next markets, a reusable thermo bottle, thus reducing the generation of packaging waste. The initiative is being a success and proof of this is how the public space where the market is placed after the merchants have collected, separated and deposited their waste in the corresponding containers. Neighbors who go shopping at the flea market are also the target of this commitment.
Starting this Tuesday, all visitors to the weekly Bullas flea market will receive the so-called "bag 15" a reusable bag so that they can put their purchase in it and can reuse it, again and again, to transport food or other objects.
The resistance of this bag is guaranteed for a minimum of 15 times, although it can exceed a hundred uses. With the delivery of "bag 15", the Bullas City Council wants to remind neighbors of the importance of reusing products while they are useful, avoiding the habits of using and throwing normally used in the use of plastic bags. The commitment to the reuse and continued use of this reusable bag will also have recognition and appreciation from the City Council with the delivery of a reusable thermo bottle to all those residents who come a minimum of 3 times to make their purchases to the market using it.
To certify this use, residents must show their bag to the civil protection services present in the market and they will make a sign of use in the bag.
When the neighbor has 3 signs, he can claim his reusable thermos bottle.
