Trying to discard a holiday tree? OOMAPAS tree collection Jan. 15 – 31

In an effort to prevent the discarding of holiday trees in inappropriate spots, beginning Jan. 15th the local Water Department (OOMAPAS) has set up a collection site for the discard of natural Christmas trees.

Héctor Acosta Félix, OOMAPAS Director, explains that from now through January 31st his office will be receiving discarded trees, Monday – Saturday between 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. In addition, he remarks there will be a special squad sent out to help those who do not have a way to get their dry trees to OOMAPAS. For this service, call 383 6080, 383 5616, or 383 3507.

The goal, explains Acosta Félix, is to grind the trees and convert them into compost for subsequent use as fertilizer in parks and other public areas across the city.

The new OOMAPAS offices are located behind the IMSS General Hospital in the area of Las Brisas (Ave. Río Bravo between Ave. Marcelo Pino and Ave. Oriente).
