San José to Install 2,000 Trash Cans

August 20, 2010

San José’s city government announced Wednesday that it will begin to install 2,000 trash cans around the capital city Friday. The trash cans were bought as part of an agreement between the municipality and the Banco de Costa Rica.

Friday morning, officials from City Hall and Banco de Costa Rica will install the first trash bin in Parque María Auxiliadora in Zapote, a southeastern district of San José.

All of San José’s 11 districts will receive new waste containers. The bins will be placed mostly near parks and bus stops.

“There is no excuse for the amount of trash around bus stops and parks, and on streets and sidewalks,” City Hall said in a press release Wednesday.

The city hopes the new receptacles will help “contribute to the beautification and cleanliness of the city.”
