The residents of the Titerroy neighbourhood of Arrecife in Lanzarote have decided this week to do what they claim municipal services are not doing in the Parque de los Pinos, which is to clean it.
After these residents came together to clean the Parque de los Pinos, they reported they had used many brushes, brooms, rakes and garbage bags, as well as many cleaning products.
Although, angry that the City Council had not maintained this park at higher standards of cleanliness, they were also pleased with their efforts of cleaning up, but also said they also needed to clean all the dirt off themselves afterwards, and needed some long showers too!
