Basura que no es basura
Since 2011, The Municipality of Miraflores has been implementing the program "Waste that is not waste" in order to promote a culture of environmental commitment based on the correct disposal of solid waste to reduce its impact and promote recycling. Actually, the program has more than 15,000 participating households which is equivalent to 48.1% of the population.
