The municipal government, through the Municipal Cleaning Company of Santa Cruz (Emacruz), will incorporate four points for the deposit of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), in the districts of the city. The objective is to avoid the environmental pollution generated by the inadequate handling of this waste.

In the first months of 2017 the first point will be placed in District 2. The Ecopoints will also allow neighbors to deposit their computers and telecommunication equipment in disuse.

Currently, Emacruz together with the Foundation for Recycling (Fundare), carry out a project where 11 WEEE points have been incorporated.

I just hope this initiative consolidates and is replicated throughout our beautiful Bolivia
