Basura (garbage) is a steady problem in the tropics and Puerto Vallarta is no exception. We all need to do our part to help and when we do, it makes life far more pleasant for everyone involved. There are no exceptions, considering that from birth to death, we all create copious amounts of waste.
Community groups thrive in the winter months but in low season there are simply less people in Puerto Vallarta to pick up the slack. Less people should represent less trash but it doesn’t always work out that way. One look at our beaches, parks and streets reveals evidence of a problem. While walking the pup, we have picked up litter along the canal that will fill a couple large bags in the length of only one city clock. That’s too darn much.
Do your part by making sure to put your household trash out for collection on your designated day. If you don’t know what day that is, find out from your administrator, HOA president, neighbors or shop owners in the area. Pickup in your colonia happens on specific days, at exact hours; we have seldom seen any wavering from schedule.
Use a heavy duty plastic bag and make sure it is tightly tied at the top. Don’t leave it open. Do not place items on top of piles that will invite stray dogs, cats and wild animals to begin digging. We have also seen garbage sitting atop a bag with food items exposed, chicken bones, dry tortillas crumbling, cans with food residue that haven’t been rinsed or bagged.
Instead of complaining about the amount of plastic bottles, floating grocery bags and OXXO cups in Puerto Vallarta, grab your own trash-bag and take a walk. Wear protective gloves and pick up whatever lays in your path. There are empty lots in Puerto Vallarta that are open dumping grounds. Don’t be afraid to wear some closed toe shoes and buy or borrow a rake if you haven’t one of your own. Make an effort to assist your community in its beautification. Pick up after yourself at the beach and park; take whatever trash that isn’t yours in a decided radius. Be a part of the solution. Setting an example is the best way to get things done, and others are sure to follow your lead.
Que es cómo es.
