To the happiness of residents, Mayor Arturo Dávalos Peña has launched a 3-step waste collection and reduction program in Puerto Vallarta, starting with the recent enactment of daily garbage pick-up. The next steps will include sanctions against those who do not adhere to waste regulations and waste separation programs, all designed to keep our city looking its best. Here are a few things you can do to support the city in this mission.
- Always put garbage in the correct collection areas during the hours assigned for your neighborhood.
- Always ensure that your garbage is placed in a sealed bag that is not torn or straining.
- Always carry reusable bags for shopping.
- Avoid buying overpackaged products, like single serving portions or plastic packed fruits or vegetables.
- Use cloth napkins instead of paper and avoid disposable plates and cutlery.
- Always take all your trash from the beaches in Puerto Vallarta, and go the extra step by picking up anything that fellow beach-goers may have left behind.
- Instead of buying new, check online resources like Craigslist and Puerto Vallarta Buy and Sell on Facebook for gently used goods.
