Chihuahua Local Government Construction Refuse Management - Municipality of Chihuahua
  • Start year: 2011
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status:

Regarding waste materials and in response to one of the
city’s most tangible and extreme pollution and urban image
problems, a major oversight/enforcement operation
was undertaken citywide to rein in clandestine construction
refuse and garbage dumpling. As part of this effort, four
control sites for the proper and legal rubble disposal were
opened and received more than 300,000 m3 of construction
refuse, reducing sanctions by 50% in the corresponding
timeframe. Investments in contracting D6 and D8 machinery
for proper construction oversight were also made
and have led to increased citizen participation with regard
to authorized site use.
