MEXICO CITY.- Next weekend the head of government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum will make an inspection visit to the Urban Solid Waste Recycling Plant, which, according to the government of the capital, is the most modern in Latin America.
At a press conference, the capital’s president pointed out that currently, in the capital of the country between one thousand and two thousand tons of garbage of the 12 thousand tons that are generated daily are recycled.
This, only with a very important effort that has been made of efficiency in the Collection and Separation System; But now, with the new plant that we are going to present on Sunday, –which is already operating, which is in Azcapotzalco, which is part of the Vallejo project, which, as you will see, is a very modern plant and which is public– there is an additional percentage that is going to be reduced, reaching levels where even the pet is separated by color, which allows its recycling in a better way ”.
For his part, the general director of Environmental Impact and Regulation of Sedema, André Guigue, explained that as part of the Zero Waste Program it is important that citizens separate their waste from home so that it can be used.

We have been increasing the income at the Transfer Stations by separation –which we have been talking to, both with the Union and the municipalities–, since the Transfer Stations have increased their percentages of receiving separated garbage; However, well, after the pandemic –as you know–, we must make a much more important effort to achieve what we have proposed, precisely within the “Zero Waste” Program –which announced the Head of Government in the 2019– ”.
The capital city official commented that in the first semester of 2021 with the separation program, 186 thousand 595 tons of organic waste entered transfer stations.
