This is the best news we have had all year. A committee of concerned and influential citizens have come together to build a new recycling depot in Tulum! The struggle for recycling plastics, paper and more is now over, the final sustainable practice that Tulum has long been waiting for! The ground will be broken in early 2013 as local businesses and the Municipal Government have stepped up to the plate and donated money to get the building of the depot completed.
Simplicity is best when it comes to recycle depots
The new recycle depot will be simple and easy to maintain. The local businesses will take a responsible role in making sure that their recycled products get to the depot, a simple task as many remove or compost their garbage already. What the depot will do, is separate and sell the recycled items to help the maintenance costs of the depot and ensure that the recycled items get delivered to companies outside of Tulum who can reuse plastic, cans, glass and more! Tulum’s limitations to recycling were contacts with companies who would take the recycled garbage and a committee to run the depot efficiently. This has been found and local businesses are overjoyed!

Thanks to the resident committee of Tulum, a volunteer committee that has donated their time and expertise to this project. It is citizens like these that make Tulum what it is, a community focussed town that cares about its people and its ecology.Follow the development of the new Recycling depot on Facebook!
