Taking care of the sewers, I protect the sea

Learn about the efforts focused on good used oil disposal management and its importance to the San Juan Bay Estuary Watershed. These are centered around Estuario’s Resilient Community Hubs and aim to reduce oil contamination through urban water infrastructure.

The campaign Don’t let it touch the ground or reach the water also aims to improve solid waste management throughout the communities surrounding calle Loíza, in San Juan. It includes several participating businesses in the area who have implemented responsible waste management strategies.
