This is Our Home: Tackling Rural Solid Waste Issues

Proud of the work I get to do with the Rural Community Assistance Partnership, Inc. (RCAP). Check out this new video on solid waste management we recorded in Puerto Rico!

Manzanilla lies on the southern coast of Puerto Rico, where the Jacaguas River meets the Caribbean Sea. Like many rural communities, they face challenges with illegal dumping, proper waste disposal, and recycling. With the help of the Rural Community Assistance Partnership, residents are organizing and working with local community groups to clean up their community, create a sense of ownership for public spaces, put infrastructure in place, and educate residents to ensure a lasting change in how trash and recycling are managed. See how they launched a successful clean-up event and are organizing to get the resources they need to keep their community clean.
