Zamboni For The Beach

The city is deploying one traveling crew of four men to work from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm to clean our beaches. Another crew takes over from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm

They are cleaning beaches ranging from Migriño to Buena Vista, as well as the main beaches that have trained lifeguards such as at Palmilla, El Chileno Santa Maria, El Medano and beaches on the tourist corridor in San Jose.

From 40 to 50 bags of garbage are picked up every day. That’s about 1,000 tons of ickies. There are currently more than 100 trash cans on the beaches, but apparently many of us have bad throwing arms.

City officials worked very hard to earn the blue flag the federal government gives out for beaches that are kept spiffy, but we lost them due to slipping conditions. Officials are trying to get those blue flags waving over our beaches again.
