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.
