With the help of some fantastic volunteers including Yoli, Edmundo, Hugo, Adam, and Wilder, we were able to recycle all of the materials last week.
|Edmundo, Yoli, Amy, and a lot of plastic!|
First we worked on the Pop Wuj roof, organizing and preparing the plastic and glass. Then we carried the aluminum and tin to Don Tito, near Mercado Las Flores. We sold 13 lbs of aluminum and 10 lbs of other metal for a total of Q42, or about $6 USD.

In the afternoon, during a brief break from the rain, we took the plastic and glass to Recip. We recycled 238 lbs of plastic and 96 lbs of glass for a total of Q105 or about $14.
|Such strength! Adam and Wilder load the pick up|
