Mitigation actions

Chihuahua Local Government Construction Refuse Management
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. Start year 2011
