Hi, we are soon to take the keys for our new hone in Mula and have a couple of questions about the rubbish. 

If we are clearing the house of furniture items and also have some general and garden waste, what is best to do with it? We were thinking Charity shops for furniture. Is there a recycling or rubbish tip for the other things that we can use? 

For day to day rubbish, are bins collected or similar? 

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks.

The recycling centre is just off the Corfusa roundabout on the road to Pliego,  shown on map attached.

Day to day rubbish and recycling is in bins located in the streets close to where you live, if you are in Mula town, or at road ends close to main roads if in the rural area. Most will have bottles and cartons recycling and all will have black bag recycling, oil and clothes recycling bins are a bit less frequent but they are there. If you struggle to locate one near you, then the Ayuntamiento will be able to help you. Hope this helps.

Thank you so much for your help. Fingers crossed we are flying out on Wednesday!

Check the times when you are allowed to deposit rubbish in the bins (must be bagged, and often there are recycling options for glass, paper & packaging, or plastic containers - largely ignored by the Spanish). In summer expect it to be 9pm to 10.30pm or similar, to avoid rubbish being in the bins all day in the heat - collections are usually nightly, late.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks so much.
