Our Place Is Your Place for the Best in Boquete
We will update you here, on upcoming events related to Recycling.
Boquete has a couple of options for Recycling. Monday to Saturday, 8 am - 5 pm, the recycle place is located beside the Bible Fellowship. They only take the following items:
Cardboard, Steel, Aluminum Cans, Clear Wine Bottles, Newspaper and White Paper, Iron, Copper, Bronze, and Car Batteries.
Once every month or so, there is a larger event on a Sunday, organized by some Boquete Residences, that you can bring all your Recyclables to. We will announce at the top of this page, when that date is.
If you are interested in a cleaner Boquete and want to help raise consciousness of your fellow expats and Boqueteños…
Please consider joining in our efforts.
We have had several activities to date, notably, we have twice joined together for trash pick ups along on our highways. We provided some of the needed supplies, but extra bags and gloves were appreciated.
And we have found a need for additional collection of items not accepted at the local recycle center next door to Boquete Bible Fellowship. This important service has occurred three times in 2018, once each month, on a Sunday from 8am to 2pm where you are encouraged to bring in clean recycled plastic bottles and bags, as well as almost anything else plastic, of any color, as well as any glass containers of any color. As an additional service, you may bring newspaper, cardboard, other metal cans, whether aluminum or tin, and small batteries. We encourage you to separate these in advance or we must do it at the collection site. Please remove all lids and bring those too, in a separate bag.
We will give you notice as soon as possible when we are given a location to hold this event. So far, we have three times used the slaughterhouse, on the way to Dolega, just a short distance from the Cefati; that is the Boquete Visitors Center.
Our purpose is to greatly reduce what must go to our landfills, and to educate our children to be more consciousness so they will not litter.
