Challenge

The region known as "LĂ­nea Sur," has a low social and economic living standard and very few resources. Garbage is disposed of in an open-air dump and is dispersed many kilometers by strong winds. This affects the health and dignity of the communities, the fauna and the environment.

Solution

Eradicate existing refuse dumps and create small, manual sanitary landfills. Recycle materials that could be useful for the community, including by compost. Create educational programs for the community about waste management and environment care.

Long-Term Impact

Reduces pollution of land and groundwater. Minimizes the impact of the current desertification by encouraging the creation of plant nurseries. Gives communities an environmental conscience and the know-how to take advantage of waste.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
