News and Events, Questions and Answers



Urgent Todos Santos Recycling News - Attention Todos Santos Recyclers: Due to a massive amount of after hours dumping on the property in Town, we are suspending the recycling service for a month to organize materials, clear the land in town, and rethink the system to prevent the problematic dumping of materials after the hours of operation. Todos Santos is a special place, and as much as it is deserves to have a recycling program, it is important that is operates correctly, efficiently, and neatly! Please hold on to cardboard, plastics, and metals. We will NOT be accepting ANY glass upon restart of the program. The road to Cabo is TOO tough on our vehicles to transport the glass at this time. If you wish to save your CLEAR glass and transport it to Cabo to the glass factory I sincerely urge you to do so. Please respect this decision and do not dump material during this time. Please urge others not to either.

On another note: This program has been operating successfully for a year and a half. The plastic, paper, metals are all transported to Cabo, processed, baled and shipped to Mainland or Tijuana. The clear glass is recycled in Cabo Glass factories and the colored glass is going to be recycled into fiberglass in Mexicali with a company called Strategic Materials. It is disheartening to hear people doubt the process and hard work we put into this. It is simply irrational to believe the material does not move and subsequently assume that over a year’s worth of recycling material could actually fit on the current land being used. We have been dedicated to the success of this program and want to see it continue. Please help us by being patient and respectful of the aforementioned requests. Please feel free to contact us personally with any questions. Thank you. - Enviromass, info [- at -] enviromass.com, www.enviromass.com, 624-174-9260
