We last recycled in August of this year. Since then we've been collecting plastic, aluminum, tin, cardboard, and glass at Pop Wuj and the Family Support Center in Llanos. On Thursday afternoon we headed out to Llanos to carry back 20 costales (big bags) of plastic on public transportation. With help from John, a Pop Wuj student, and Dawn, a former intern, we were able to bring it all in and store it with the rest of the recycling on Pop Wuj's roof.

On Friday morning we carried bags upon bags of plastic and other recylcing down two flights of stairs and awaited the truck. We quickly loaded the truck and hit the road to Cantel.
