    From January 15 to January 19, the organization collected nearly three tons of aluminum, a ton of cardboard, a ton of plastic and another 500 kilograms of glass.

    “Our employees walk around the fairgrounds collecting waste. In addition, there is a fixed point where people can deposit recyclables, which is located behind the concert area,” reported Harry Vargas, the head of the recycling unit for Coca Cola.

    The collectors are properly identified by a gray shirt with a Palmares Civic Association badge.

    The Mission Planet campaign in Palmares has been in place for eight years. Last year, 12.5 tons of waste were collected. (Amelia Rueda)
