In one thing Costa Ricans love more than the festivals is littering. Just look around after a concert at the national stadium, the Tope in San José or as is the case in the current major event in Palmares.

However, one group, Misión Planeta, for the sixth year, will collect waste in Palmares for shipment to places like Mexico and China to be recycled and used in the manufacturing of new products.

A team of 80 people are responsible for picking up trash that includes plastic containers, cardboard and aluminum that is take to a plant in Naranjo, where it will be sorted and shipped out.
