Comprehensive Project for Collection and Final Disposal of Municipal Solid Waste in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora

Status: Completed


The city is faced with critical problems in terms of the management of its municipal solid waste, from street cleaning to the collection and final disposal of municipal solid waste.


With this two-phase project, the city of Puerto Peñasco plans to:

  • Construct and equip a new sanitary landfill;
  • Purchase new trucks to ensure timely and continuous collection
  • Close the existing open air dump;
  • Strengthen the institutional capacity of the municipal administration
    in terms of waste collection and disposal to facilitate efficient
    system management and operation.


This project will reduce the environmental and health risks by meeting urgent garbage collection and disposal needs, and covering the existing open air landfill.
