With the Easter holidays, the daily production of trash has increased to 60 tonnes, which is being removed with increased trips daily. There are four vehicles, working in three shifts to collect trash around the island. Additional trucks have arrived, and expectations are being met about the clean up of the Transfer Facility, where the backhoe and transfer truck are in operation.
There are two shifts of street sweepers, and a total of 40 people working day and night to make Isla Mujeres look its finest and to present a good appearance for the thousands of tourists who choose to visit this destination.

Cleaning up the Trash Transfer Facility
Keeping the Viacrucis reenactment safe
Tourists reassured by presence of military
Members of the Navy are patrolling the streets and beaches as part of Operation Easter 2014, offering security and medical support to tourists. Visitors ask to take photographs with the sailors, and say that their presence gives them confidence in the security of this location where they are spending their holiday, with its hospitality, which attracts the travelers. The Municipal police have two checkpoints to detect speeding and offer roadside assistance. One is located near the vehicular ferry (on Rueda Medina) and the other is located near the Aguakan pump station (on the eastern road through Aeropuerto). The municipal police is also patrolling the downtown streets. It is noted that Naval admiral Juan Ramón Alacíala Pignol, with his deeds and work, had gained the confidence and respect of the islanders.
