Millions to be invested in expanding Algarve landfills

Waste recycling and treatment company Algar is to invest around €7.6 million in expanding its two landfills in the Algarve, to increase capacity for waste disposal.

In the eastern Algarve, in Cortelha, Loulé, the work will cost in the region of €4 million and be finished in October. According to newspaper Correio da Manhã, the new cell to be opened up will have capacity for 130,000 tons of un-separated waste, over 10 years. This landfill will take the waste produced in Faro, Loulé, São Brás de Alportel, Olhão, Tavira, Vila Real de Santo António, Castro Marim and Alcoutim, and will augment the existing two-cell landfill inaugurated 18 years ago.
A third cell has been planned for the site since its construction.
In the western Algarve, in Porto de Lagos, Portimão, work is already underway to expand the site and is expected to be finished by the middle of next year.
The original landfill was inaugurated 20 years ago. Investment in the region of €3.6 million will see the site expanded to accommodate an extra million cubic metres of solid waste, from the counties of Albufeira, Lagoa, Lagos, Monchique, Portimão, Silves, Aljezur and Vila do Bispo.
