Cozumel Recycling

CAMAR Continues Used Electronics Recycling Campaign

Cozumel’s Centro de Acopio de Materiales Reciclables (CAMAR) has extended their campaign to collect used electronics, and are actively seeking old TVs, electronic tablets, cellular phones and even alkaline batteries.  If these items are tossed into vacant lots or landfills they can transfer the acids that their batteries contain into island aquifers which can negatively affect Cozumel’s eco-system.  The Used Electronics program began in January and has already collected nearly a ton of this type of refuse.

Cozumel Recycling Location

Cozumel’s Centro de Acopio de Materiales Reciclables (CAMAR) hours of operation are Monday – Friday from 8 AM – 3 PM, and they are located on Calle 1 between Ave 140 and 145.

An ex-Connecticut Yankee who has called Cozumel home for over 18 years, Laura ran away to the Caribbean years ago, bumped around the islands teaching SCUBA diving, lost some time in Jamaica, and finally stopped in Cozumel for a 2 week vacation that hasn’t ended yet. With a degree in Journalism from a fancy private college she convinced her parents to pay for, Laura writes, edits, and creates the weeklyCozumel 4 You news,social media, and promotional articles about the island, as well as moderates the Cozumel 4 You Facebook group, which currently has over 25,000 members. Her long suffering husband, Fabian, has long since resigned himself to having zero private life, as he’s been involved in her various schemes and plots since his arrival. Proud parents to a variety of rescue dogs and cats, Laura continues to be the bane of her traditional Mexican mother-in-law’s existence, as she muses her way through life in the Mexican Caribbean.
