From Garbage to Tourism
Hearing about the horrors of trash is the norm so it was nice to see a dump success story. An article in InfoSurHoy talks about a 14 year project in El Rosario, a community 32km south of Managua, to build a model dump.
Fourteen years later, El Rosario’s waste management station opened in January 2012 as a botanical garden. The government is urging the community to enjoy the garden’s variety of trees and ornamental plants that are rooted in fertilizer composed of organic waste.
Anyone here have first hand knowledge of the facility?
