First, many Pop Wuj students showed up at 7am on Wednesday morning to help me prep and re-pack the plastic. An hour later we had all of the recycling down to street level, waiting for the truck.
We loaded (overloaded?) the truck and made it about a block before we lost the first bag to a left turn. We reloaded and set out again for Recip, the recycling center on the road to the coast.
At Recip we unloaded and weighed all of the plastic, glass, aluminum, and tin resulting in a Q104 profit!
In total we recycled:
- 397 lbs of plastic, collected from Pop Wuj, the kids at the Family Support Center, and the safe stove families in Llanos del Pinal
- 25 lbs of glass, collected from the Pop Wuj students and teachers
- 6 lbs of tin, collected from the Pop Wuj students and teachers
- 7 lbs of aluminum, collected from the Pop Wuj students and teachers
