The recent fire at the plastic recycling plant made me think of this...

In the past, one of the issues with living in Almerimar in the summer has been the nasty smell that occasionally comes down over the hill first thing in the morning. I believe that this has been due to the wind blowing the smell from a plant refuse recycling plant. I think that the smell comes from somewhere between Almerimar and the motorway.

Some years ago it was a very regular occurrence every summer. Touch wood, it seems to have been much better so far this year. I think I can only remember the smell being here on a small number of occasions. Also, the strength of it seems much less than in the past. Fingers crossed that this continues to be the case.
