Recycling in La Manzanilla
Posted by LisaFern on May 9, 2018, 5:34 pm
"Las Hormigas" (The Ants) recycling station is now open to receive your recyclables!! |
Las Hormigas Reciclaje is located just behind the primary school off calle Playa Dorada. Thanks to all who are helping with this continuing effort!
PLEASE do not leave trash! This will set back this important initiative. PLEASE close the gate to keep dogs out.
WHAT CAN BE ACCEPTED CURRENTLY:
~Plastic bottles and containers (with or without lids) All plastic that contained water, soft drinks, juice, milk or cleaning products (e.g. chlorine, pinol, suavitel),
NO cooking oil plastic bottles
NO waxy juice boxes
NO plastic bags
~Hard plastic such as: plastic chairs, crates, buckets
~Batteries, including car batteries
~ Cardboard, paper & books
~ Mixed (scrap) Metal
Tin, beer & soft drink metal bottle caps
dog food cans, cans from food, etc
We'll even take your old car if you want to scrap it!!
Put CLEAR glass in the metal container, place COLORED glass along the south wall as we are not ready to process this as yet
When bringing your glass, Please place all boxes in the appropriate cardboard recycle bin, and reuse your plastic bags which are not recyclable.
Yes, you do need to transport your recyclables to this first site. It's a start, and with the help of our volunteers, students and their families, and El Municipio de La Huerta, we hope to expand the separation and collection of recyclables, (including organic material), so that we can reduce the quantity entering the land fill.
Thank you for saving these things in your homes until now!
If you have suggestions or want to help La Manzanilla Hermosa, please contact me. It takes a village!
