We at CATUMO would like to wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support and participation during the last year which aided us greatly in all our endeavors! 2011 was definitively a learning experience that yielded spectacular results! here’s to a year of success, Success of the recycling program, of finally having the hill paved and above all, the development of a clearer method/channel of communication among the citizens of our little village.
Also, we want to update you on the latest good news:
1 – Now we are recycling cans! this includes all types of food cans -collected together with the tetra-pack and general aluminum containers
2 – We started again to do scheduled pick-ups of recyclables between Montezuma – Cabuya and Pura Vida, between 6 – 10 am:
Montezuma – Cabuya: Wednesdays
Montezuma – Pura Vida: Thursdays
It is very important to leave the recyclables in a visible place on the road so our collector (Macho) can see them. They have to be in a properly sealed plastic bag and please make sure that the bag only contains recyclables and not organic waste or general trash. We also request that you separate the recyclables. If you have any doubts on what materials or containers we accept please do not hesitate to send us an email and we will be glad to forward you the information about “the what”, “the when” and “the where”.
3 – The new Recycling center is already up and running! It is located in Delicias where volunteers help us with the separation, flattening and packing of the recycling. And at this point we would like to thank Ori from Amor de Mar for helping us with the daily transportation of the volunteers from Montezuma to Delicias!
It is important, however, to finish the construction of the Recycling Center: It is rather urgent for a water tank to be installed on site to aid in the recycling process. Thus, we are currently seeking the following materials: cement, pipes, building supplies, and lastly a donation of money to build it. The water meter alone costs ¢180.000, so any contribution now is very needed and welcome.
Thank you for your kind attention. If you are interested in more info about the Recycling program and the new center or would like to make a donation please contact: Antonio ( firstname.lastname@example.org ), Ori (Tel. 2642-0262) or Sandy (email@example.com ).
