José Zaghlul, Earth University president, said waste collectors will be placed starting many points between Plaza del Sol in Curridabat (east side of San José). Last year the starting point was the La Galera.

“Costa Ricans are conforming. If they have a place to discard their waste they will do it”, according to Zaghlul who added that this year the effort has the support from more sponsors and that the initiative is becoming a tradition.

The goal this year is to collect more than 90% of the solid waste. Last year 87% of solid wast was collected, according to Zaghlul.

More than 2.000 volunteers will be taking part in the environmental challenge.
