Tulum suffers from extreme overbuilding and overconsumption.  There is not a viable, sustainable program to handle all of the recyclables, so a rudimentary patchwork system exists.  

We were thrilled to discover a new recycling center that opened in December 2020 that is a joint venture of BioHogar and Eukariota, called el Centro Integral de Reciclaje de Tulum.  More information can be found here:

At the Rotary Club of Tulum, we have made a commitment to volunteer our time on the first Monday of each month from 8am-10am.  We're committed to promoting this effort with the goal of encouraging others to join us as well.

We hope to see you there soon!
