Mexico Modernizes Garbage Collection Service

1
Garbage collectors, with their horse and cart, unload rubbish at the municipal dump in Nezahualcoyotl, on the outskirts of Mexico City, February 18, 2015. Hundreds of horse or donkey-drawn carts will disappear from the streets of a municipality in the state of Mexico, located on the outskirts of Mexico City, and will be replaced by motorized vehicles, local authorities said. Nezahualcoyotl, commonly known as Neza, has started to retire 457 two-wheeled carts which have been collecting household rubbish for the past 45 years. They currently gather 300 of the 1,200 tonnes of rubbish produced in the area on a daily basis.The carts will be replaced by motorized vehicles – a motorcycle and trailer with capacity for half a tonne of rubbish – in the next two months. The vehicles will move along at 30 kilometres (18 miles) per hour. (Photo by Henry Romero/Reuters)
