Troncones Limpia 2019 Report and 2020 Projections
In 2019 our membership increased by 35% from 2018.
90% of our garbage is actually resource and is made up of:
Plastic- Can be sold Glass- Building material Metal- Can be soldCarboard- Compost & mulch Food Waste- compost for decreased chemical fertilizer Garden Waste- mulch for decreased water waste & chemical fertilizerTroncones Limpia’s job is to educate our community to turn our trash into local resources. This will also help to decrease burning that causes smoke inhalation which is toxic and disease causing. It will also decrease the need for more garbage pickup and decrease the spill off from the garbage truck which smells and is a turn off to residents and visitors.As Troncones grows, all the above becomes more important and if left unattended, will likely become more difficult, possibly even causing irreparable damage to our beautiful natural environment.Education2019 70 Environmental Art W/shops in local schools 8 Restaurant w/shops- packaging & health 12 Gardener & farmer w/shops 5 Healthy Food w/shops for women 4 Recycling w/shops for La Union Municipality 6 Ejido Lectures on Recycling, Non-Burning & support to improve monthly clean ups.
