Established alliances for the provision of equipment and machinery. «The process is moving forward; We have our own fleet and a motivated staff, we have equipped all employees with the instruments, in compliance with the rules of the Organic Law on Prevention, Conditions and Work Environment so that workers can provide the service, without risking their lives " .
He indicated that they will continue in the coming days to provide information on the urban cleaning schedule so that each community knows when the truck will pass and that citizens can remove the waste on the day and time corresponding to its collection.
: »We know that we can work to raise awareness in each of the communities, but that is only achieved when our people know what the collection process will be like. We also ask for collaboration, not to take it from bag to bag, but in a black bag that has more capacity, in order to avoid watering it, that there be collective awareness, "he said.
