Pruning information

Official Point of Deposit of vegetal residues

Our urbanization generates a large amount of plant waste that must be deposited at the official points.  They are identified, they are easily locatable and of exclusive use of the urbanization. The security company Franjus passes us a couple of weekly listings to be aware of their situation to notify the collection company.

There are situations in which it is necessary to deposit the remains in other places to be collected from there, for this it is essential to previously contact us (tel 952 93 20 40) so the date of collection is agreed. Massive pruning of pines must be previously notified and their cost paid separately.

Any pruning or felling requires the indispensable municipal authorization. In the following link you can access the necessary information: Pruning and felling forms in Mijas (automated translation, because the Mijas website is not available in English at the time of publishing).

If you need any additional information about authorizations you can contact the department of parks and gardens of Mijas in the following email:

We would like to highlight that it is very important that you follow the instructions regarding authorization of pruning / felling regarding the deposit of vegetal residues in the official places. Its breach can bring you an important sanction, all this is regulated in the ordinance for planning, management, use and protection of green areas and plant heritage of the municipal district of Mijas (in Spanish).
