Recycling and Solid Waste Management

Trash On Beach

How can we take care of the solid waste being disposed on the Magdalena river, swamps and ocean in Barranquilla and Atlántico?

For many years, in Barranquilla and Atlántico, the disposal of solid waste in their water bodies has been evident. This has become a permanent problem for the city and department. Both have been working to promote good solid waste management, which has been aimed at improving the quality of life and in turn creating a civic culture. However, there are many steps and milestones needed to be accomplished before the situation fully changes. For this challenge, we are looking for bold ideas associated with new ways of recycling and using the solid waste that can be found on the Magdalena river, ocean and swamps. We also welcome ideas that help raise awareness among citizens.
