Cali, It is the third largest city in Colombia and the second city that generates more garbage; according to the Superintendency of Public Utilities, at 2017 waste produced by caleños, reached the 648.193 tons, representing 6,5% of the total produced annually in the country, which rubs 9,9 millions of tons.
The issue of waste is more complex in the capital cities, because this factor is directly related to the size of the population, that every day grows more and more, and now we are facing the great migration of people from the neighboring country. If this is the report last year, because they have not updated the figures, What we will show the updated report? Do you think that as citizens we have improved in this topic?.
