Lagoa council has issued a notification on behalf of Algarve waste treatment company Algar to warn residents that the collection of separated waste across the Western Algarve could suffer constraints due to Algar employees being involved in firefighting efforts

In the notification published on social media, the Council said “at the request of Algar, we inform that, due to the fire that continues to affect the municipality of Monchique, selective [waste] collection will suffer some constraints due to the fact that some employees, more specifically four collection teams that usually provide this service are, directly or indirectly, involved in fighting the flames”.
Algar has said it will “try to minimise the effects that will be felt in the western Algarve by diverting some means from the eastern Algarve, a situation that may lead to some abnormalities in this region of the Algarve, which is why we appeal for understanding of the stoppages that will be felt”.

Finally, Algar said, we “take the opportunity to express our solidarity with the municipality of Monchique, hoping that this tragedy will be quickly overcome”.
Algar is responsible for emptying the ‘eco-islands’ and ‘eco-points’ into which separated waste – paper, plastic and glass – is discarded.
