Stones left....

September 6th 2016 I get to saint Jean, I plan on staying here 2 nights as I don't get there till late on the 6th so will set off on September 8th So if anyone is in Saint Jean at this time and wants a little wine... Give me a shout!!! ;)
I know this is a 50/50 split on the stones that people carry and leave on the route... But that's not my question, I know that they are cleared away regularly... But I was wondering do they get reconciled? I'm sure if they did some of the local people could put these to use in building projects. Just wondering if anyone knew.

If you mean the leavings on top of mojones, virtually all of those are road gravel, so it always was a local building supply. Most pilgrims take one stone (at most) to leave at the Cruz de Ferro. Those stay but detritus left with them is put in the garbage.
