Building materials for the Centre

After the GVI Mexico team and volunteers joined the Maraton ecologico de la Riviera Maya back in October 2012, to pay for construction material transportation and to continue building the Punta Allen recycling centre, we have finally raised more funds to continue building the centre.

Community members in Punta Allen, situated within the UNESCO Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, wish to create and build a recycling centre where the recyclable waste can be temporarily stored once separated. With a new person from town in charge of the centre, the recycling centre is continuing to work with collecting the plastic from Punta Allen and is also focusing on making compost. In moving forward with the construction, right now the building material is been bought to start again this month. So keep watching this space to see the new developments on this story.
