The basura/rubbish tax is paid automatically via your water bill standing charge .

We have a place in Almeria and we pay it quarterly as a direct debit. We organised the payment through the bank.

If your water is via Galasa - they do not do basura as well.  You need to get the details of your account from the town hall and set up a direct debit with the bank.

I'm in Campello and the bazura here is charged by the SUMA but in a separate payment to the main SUMA charge. They only charge once a year though so it could be you missed the date, in which case the previous owner will probably have payed for you.. We have ours set up as an automatic debit order from the bank which is way less hassle than having bills delivered by post. They don't send out receipts but you can log into their website and download one as a pdf. I print these out and file them just to be on the safe side.

I have recently been told that the councils, maybe going to, or are charging a small fee to every house to cover the cost of rubbish put on the ground outside of the bins, like when people throw out old funiture etc....Have no idea if this is true or not because I haven't checked my bills yet. If true seems unfair to those who have never done this.

For us the Basura (Rubbish) fee is a separate charge on the list of town hall tax bills.

In my town the charge (fine) for not putting the rubbish in the bin, leaving it on the ground,  is up to 1,000 euros

I've never seen a seperate charge for basura but I wonder if this is the "waste water" inclusion from Emausa ( water supply in Murcia). We have a central collecting point for basura in the village. Unwanted furniture etc. left beside the bins is upcycled by our Moroccan villagers (and good luck to them) so is never collected by the authorities

Some areas charge for waste collection (the waste bins) via the water charges and some do not. We pay it as part of the water bill but just 10k up the road the residents get separate bills which is collected by SUMA (dept responsible for collecting local taxes in the Alicante region). I think most areas have different methods for collecting the rubbish. Ours is collected every night but large items (beds, sofas etc) are collected on a Thursday if you phone them although the residents round here (mainly Brits, unfortunately) tend to think they can dump them there any day and "someone" will come and get them.

There is a recycling centre just on the outskirts of town where garden rubbish can be doposited. Again, people seem to think these magic men will come along and collect it if you just dump it next to the bins and it stays there for weeks while it rots.

Check on your water bill. If there is a section for basura then that is the way it is collected. If not then contact your town hall.

Correction.  When I posted " in my town the charge (fine) for not putting the rubbish in the bin, leaving it on the ground,  is up to 1,000 euros "

Having just checked the latest notice by the bins, I see the fine is now 3,000 euros and includes putting prohibited items in the bins,

The notice shows the telephone number for the Policía Local and an invitation to report offenders.

What sort of items are prohibited in the basura? 

We normally take a lot of care to sort out recyclable items such as glass, plastics and paper and put those in the appropriate receptacles, but I wasn't aware that anything along those lines was enforced. 

Ive seen all sorts of things in the regular basura bin here, including tv sets and kitchen cabinets.

Any idea what the prohibited items are as I have never seen the notices.

I have added in blue what I understand the notice to mean.

Enseres   (utensils, furniture, instruments used domestically or commercially)

Poda        (prunings – probably cuttings from plants, bushes, trees, garden refuse, etc.)               

Escombros        Building materials, debris , rubble etc      

Muebles         Furniture and household items.

Basura           (I guess rubbish in general, as opposed to re-cycleable items , i.e. in my town:-

YELLOW BIN:    plastic, tins, bricks (plasticised/waxed cardboard type milk / juices / wine containers)  

Green BIN          bottles only.

BLUE BIN               paper/cardboard

SILVER BIN      Organic rubbish

John Mc,    I did say 'in my town'  as we know every town in Spain has it's own systems, local laws etc.
