The Funchal City Council (CMF) will resume its collection of recycled waste from Monday, the 4th of May. All schedules will remain the same as those before the State of Emergency was brought into force.
The vice-president of the municipality, Idalina Perestrelo, praises the restoration of the service by saying that “the Municipality of Funchal leads the way in the collection of recyclable urban waste in the Region. On average these collections account for two-thirds of the total rubbish produced in Funchal. The capital is the only municipality that has a door-to-door waste collection service with approximately sixty-two collection routes in operation.
The mayor, further stated “the importance of separating rubbish, an area in which the people of Funchal have set an example for many years, so we count on the commitment of everyone after this short hiatus. The service will resume in full with all the safety rules in force to protect our employees, who will use personal protective equipment such as masks and gloves.” Citizens are asked to ensure that their bins are kept clean, especially handles and lids.
CMF also informs that the on-demand rubbish removal service will also resume on the 4th of May.
