In Torremendo, residents are up in arms over a potential waste treatment plant, fearing its impact and the possible inclusion of an incinerator. During a Virgen de Monserrate association meeting, the community paused planned protests awaiting more information. Concerns were raised about the Vega Baja region’s capability to handle increased waste and the absence of sustainable recycling solutions. Orihuela’s mayor vows there won’t be an incinerator and suggests considering multiple smaller facilities to mitigate transportation costs and environmental impact. Amid political tensions, the local government and opposition demand clarity and adherence to regional protections, highlighting the ongoing Sierra Escalona protection efforts and the need for transparency in handling the region’s waste management future.
