The collection of the 45 tons of garbage took place in different beaches of the La Paz municipality, without counting the sub-delegations of Todos Santos, Los Barriles and El Cardonal, explained the official.In addition, the Zofemat department has been making the notification and inviting defaulting concessionaires that have debts from past years, in order to regularize their situation.
The latter is in compliance with the guidelines of the collaboration agreement signed with the Government of Mexico, following what was indicated by the president of Andrés Manuel López Obrador to "recover and protect Mexican beaches."
