Improving Air Quality Through Recycling
Children collect plastic bottles and metal cans, take them to the school, crush them, and bag for recycling. Funds from the recycling program help provide needed educational materials and supplies for the children.
Recycling & Public Health
The primary method of waste disposal in the village of Limón is the open burning of trash. With the many daily fires and the large amount of plastics in the refuse, this becomes a major health issue. Asthma is a significant problem in the community and can be directly linked to the burning of trash in general, and plastics in particular.
Recycling has begun! –
In July 2018 CHHF sponsored a program with the Abel Gonzales Caballero High School in Limón to begin a recycling program. On a scheduled basis, students collect plastic bottles and metal cans, take them to the school, crush and bag them for recycling. Funds from the recycling program are used for the benefit of students.
