A back lane just off the main road in Acoteias littered with several piles of broken tiles & bricks. LovelyAngry

They are too lazy. Around the back from me there are piles of builder's rubble everywhere along the dirt tracks. Less than a quarter mile away is a recycling place.

The amount of general litter and flytipping here is many times worse than anywhere I have ever been, except possibly Morocco.

This afternoon beside a lane not far from me. What is it with these people? You wouldn't see this almost anywhere else in Europe.

Friday afternoon not far from my November picture above. That previous dump is still there. Clearly many people have no respect for the country.

Varzea da Orada Thursday. This foam insulation will decompose and eventually be blown all over the place.

Some irresponsible builder who can't be bothered to take it to the appropriate place & flourescent tubes are dangerous when they explode &  break. Disgraceful.

The pile of rubble and lighting tubes pictured in my post dated 27 April is still there. Saw these yesterday afternoon in the same area, this is a composite of three pictures taken within five minutes of each other. Obviously these people live here and have no regard whatsoever for their country. They are selfish and lazy.

Same general area as above, taken yesterday afternoon. Those who do this must be the most selfish, lazy, uncaring, no conscience, people anywhere. I assume they are local builders etc because of the nature of the stuff dumped.

Fly tipping, litter, call it what you will. Parts of this area are disgusting and that's because of the disgusting people. I have to blame residents for this below. It's not the kind of stuff that tourists would dump. Sheets of plastic, paper, old cardboard boxes, bags of old clothes all strewn around not 10 metres from these bins at Vale de Parra. Not to mention that it is impossible to walk two metres along that road without seeing plastic bottles, food containers and cigarette packets that have been tossed out of car windows. Why is this condoned? Why is nothing done to clear up the mess??

What a shame, can't understand the mentality of some people, spoiling the landscape perhaps the council should put up cctv in notorious dumping spots, then fine the culprits, 
  Reminds me of fly tipping incident I witnessed in June when were sat on Victorias bar terrace, two guys form a block of flats adjacent to the bar carried a 3 seater settee and a kitchen sink and some other junk and just dumped it  next to the bins... did so without any shame and walked off, the next day there was a huge roll of carpet and boxes of smashed tiles no doubt from the same folks.... left for council to clear up Shocked

Tom,
Intrigued as to exactly where that’s at but it is fairly typical. I’ve noticed, as a consequence of the austerity measures, since the collections from these recycling sites got reduced, the receptacles were often full when folks, with all good intention, turned up to recycle. When they found the receptacles full their goodwill soon disappears and they dump adjacent, almost in protest.
Not condoning or excusing, just my observation on what’s happening, certainly in several occurrences I’ve seen.
When we take our bottles for recycling and it’s full, which is more often than not, we then put ours in the ‘take all’ bin at the top of our road. That’s not as bad as just dumping but it still peeves me that we can’t recycle.

That was by the Quinta Amizade where the horse riding place is. Heading out of Vale de Parra towards Pêra.  And just inside the Albufeira council limits.

But chucking stuff out of car windows is just plain laziness. Take it home!

Gotcha, Quinta de Saudade I think is the horse riding place, that’s right on the Albufeira boundary.
Yes, dumping from car windows is totally inexcusable. In a traffic queue at the lights between explorers and dolphins, the driver of the car on my left dropped litter, my Father in my front passenger seat, put his window down and said “Hey, pick that up!”... Unfortunately the guy didn’t and in the few seconds it took for the lights to change we received the most vitriolic verbal abuse imaginable!

Fly tipping and littering a bad problem in UK too. There's no excuse for it. The graffitti awful too - but graffiti so much worse in Portugal and Spain - it's everywhere.  


Posted By: cubsur

The kids and older morons who tag with graffiti know that nothing can happen to them even if caught. Same with that, the councils clean up the tourist areas but the rest is ignored.

Parents either don't know or don't care what their offspring are doing.

Don't we sound like our own parents? Kids today, no sense of responsibility, when we were your age copper would give us a clip round the ear and frogmarch us home to face the slipper...

But we didn't have spray cans and indelible markers.

I am going to watch the cricket.

As a Scot I'm genetically incapable of understanding or caring about cricket. To me it's in the same category as the American versions of rounders, netball and rugger.  However, I know poor sportsmanship when I see it and the Aussies have it in spades.  They are terrible losers, maybe because they don't get much practise.  So I hope England can pull a rabbit out of the hat.

Do these people have no shame? Even children's English homework was in among this lot. Nothing wrong with the rugs a good clean wouldn't cure. Seen on the way towards Algarve Shopping.

Amazed they are dumping wooden pallets, considering how many people pay good money for wood for their wood/log burners!

Near the same place, yesterday. If there is one thing that really p****s me off about the locals it is their littering and dumping. Our descendants are going to be knee deep in plastic bottles for sure.

Friday afternoon between Páteo and Cliff Richard's place. Clearly some people have no conscience or respect for the environment and could not care about what others may think.

What is wrong with some people here? Spotted these two fairly fresh deposits in the same area as those I took in the previous post, over a year ago.

This has been happening here since time immemorial. I forgot to mention that I am now seeing disposable facemasks by the roadside, obviously chucked out of car windows. Along with plastic bottles, will this be the new scourge?
