Nicaraguan waste model attracts world interest

Thursday, August 9, 2012


El Rosario, a municipality of Nicaragua with a population of 6,500 that’s 32 miles south of the capital of Managua, has a waste system that has become a national model.

The government spent $45,000 to purchase land and build the waste management system and fourteen years later, El Rosario’s waste management station opened in January 2012 as a botanical garden.

The project’s success has attracted not only local people, but also visitors from other cities and countries.
