Recycling on Bellavista hill, Valparaiso
On Jan. 10th, 2015 trash and paper recycling bins on cerro Bellavista, Valparaiso were installed. A public – private initiative to improve maintenance on Bellavista hill, and a first step towards garbage reycling. In this pilot phase only paper is recycled, hopefully soon also containers will be added for plastic and glass.
Some months ago the Municipality of Valparaiso placed baskets on various Plazas in town to leave plastic bottles. And on yet different spots glass containers can be found, more practical and effective would be to create single drop off locations for glass, paper, plastic, metal, organics, etc.
Anyhow, a positive and necessary step towards sustainable development, the important thing to do now is to educate and start recycling.
