Costa Rica: New Recycling Program in Playa Tamarindo

Sandcruiser writes about a new recycling program in Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica, which will be very good news for the local environment.


  • Roger Imerman

    In Panama we heard that in Costa Rica one could receive $80 per pound of aluminum can tabs. However, the source of this information is no longer available. Do you know whom we might contact to verify and take advantage of this?

  • Save the animals! Save the rainforest! Save this beautiful country! Save the planet! Recycling is just one small step towards that! Money should not be your incentive. The future of our livelihoods should be!
