El Alto is among the most impoverished of Bolivia's cities. El Alto has a population of 590,000 inhabitants. According to the data of the last census, 73% of the families residing in El Alto live below the poverty line. The degree of environmental deterioration in El Alto is very advanced. Only 29% of the population has access to an installed sewage system, and 66% has access to potable water. Moreover, 80% of the population does not even have trash removal.
PCI proposes to form a Youth Ecological Movement that works to improve its surroundings, while mobilizing their community with messages that convey the need for residents to take responsibility for their garbage problem.
To tackle this problem: El Alto produces 160 tons of garbage a day and can only collect 100 tons.
