One hundred percent of the organic and inorganic garbage has been removed from the Trash Transfer Facility, and half of the vegetative matter. Seven thousand tons of trash have been transported to the mainland landfill in the Continental Zone, using a dozen large trucks making crossings from Punta Sam at 10:30am and in the other direction at 4:30.

Cliff area cordoned off after rockfall  

Acordonan parte del acantilado

  The area that is cordoned off by hazard tape is across from the end of Contoy Avenue, in colonia La Gloria. It is recalled that a Frenchman fell from a Punta Sur cliffs this summer, (he landed on sand with a dislocated shoulder and scrapes & bruises), and that a habitual drinker had a fatal fall from a cliff some years ago. There are concerns that erosion is being affected by the vibrations from heavy trucks on the road, who are taking construction materials to the southern part of the isle.
