Tamarindo Talk

June 11, 2010

Nighttime scavengers have been rummaging through recycling bins in the area looking for materials to sell, leaving whatever they don’t take all over the place and making it difficult for the trucks to pick up the recycling. In an effort to thwart this, Tamarindo Recycles is asking the community to bring materials to the recycling bins on Tuesday mornings only. This way the materials will not sit overnight in the bins.

In addition, because of the rain, no more paper or cardboard will be accepted until dry season.

Busy Tamarindo Recycles also let us know that the Santa CruzMunicipality has not entirely taken over garbage pickup and removal from Tamarindo. The payment for this service is included in yearly municipal taxes, and people are not required to pay anything additional for this service.

The municipality passed on a concern via Tamarindo Recycles about pirate trash collectors who not only charge for their services, but also may not have the necessary permits to dump the garbage they collect in approved garbage dumps, and therefore are dumping it illegally in unapproved sites, randomly polluting the countryside.

Anyone contacted by pirate garbage collectors should inform Tamarindo Recycles at tamarindorecycles@gmail.com; they will contact the municipality on your behalf. Le Mystic Bar and Restaurant is now located where Bistro Langosta used to be. It serves casual French cuisine and from 6 to 11 p.m., with happy hour from 6 to 8 p.m. The restaurant is closed Sundays.

Dr. Carvajal in Villarreal now offers acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for your pet. He also stocks aquarium supplies and fish.
