The Municipal Ecology Office has set up a collection spot for recyclables just behind City Hall. This is part of the greater “It’s not plastic….it’s you” environmental awareness campaign. The collection site, with access via Ave. Coahuila between Blvd. Francisco Javier Carrillo (formerly Fremont) and Calle Ignacio Allende, can receive: plastic bottles (PET), plastic bottle tops, glass, cardboard, batteries, and paper.
Marcia Ortega Morales, Director of Municipal Ecology, explained the site encompasses the area once used for parking. With the realization of this project, which the Ecology Office has promoted for months, people can easily drop off separated recyclables in an orderly fashion. The site is currently open from 8 am – 3 pm, Mon-Fri.
The broader “It’s not Plastic…It’s you” campaign seeks to responsibly reuse items while providing appropriate final disposal for waste and generating resources for social causes.
