El Jable Lanzarote
Litter collection & recycling
Despite of the remoteness and the deserted aspect of El Jable, there is a lot of rubbish everywhere. Fly tipping is also a problem but besides that the plane is littered by many beer bottles and cans, plastic and other type of debris.
During our field dates we have already collected and recycled
Kg of residues
While cleaning the bottles and cans, we saw that small animals sometimes get trapped inside and die. Lizards, geckos, shrews, snails, insects just cannot resist the sugar in the remnants of beer.
