'These dumps don't recycle, they contaminate'

LOS BARRIOS With a banner that reads 'THESE DUMPS DON'T RECYCLE, THEY CONTAMINATE' some twenty people turned up at the rubbish dump in Los Barrios on Saturday to protest about the pollution (contaminación in Spanish) that comes from the area's major 'recycling' plant. (See A walk in the muck ...). Even the environmental authorities have agreed that there is significant pollution from leaching of heavy metals, but "can't be exact as to where it comes from," said one of the demonstrators. The protest was decided on spontaneously and there was not enough time to advise more people. More demos are planned.
