Process for Applying for the Basura Discount

Below is information received from Gloria Diego (Lex tax Abogados) detailing the process for applying for the discount offered by the Jávea Ajuntament. This information was received on 10th December 2013.

However, today [9th November 2016], my wife walked into the Clot office with no documents or forms, etc. and walked out 5 minutes later having registered for the 40% discount on next year's Basura charges. Last year the process was exactly the same, so maybe they have abandoned the process described below?


[10th December 2013]

The Townhall of Jávea grants a 40% reduction on the Garbage rate (Basura) to its inhabitants that are older than 65 years old or pensioners. This benefit is only for the property owned by someone, which is its habitual abode, so you need to be registered in the padron in this house to obtain the benefit.

This benefit can be requested by following the instructions: (but see comments above)

  • Fill in the blank application form (below) with your contact details: Name and surname, NIE, complete address and telephone number.
    [There is a translated application form (below) so that you can know which information to fill in each field.]
  • Sign the form.
  • Attach a copy of the last paid Garbage Rate (Tasa Servicio Gestión Residuos Sólidos).
  • Attach a copy of your Passport or Residence certificate.
  • In case where you are a pensioner, you need provide an official certificate stating that you receive a state pension (from the DWP). If the document is not written in Spanish a sworn translation is needed.
