The waste on Bonaire is collected by servisio di di limpiesa Boneiru (Selibon) N.V. For all your questions about garbage, bulky waste, industrial waste, waste disposal and landfill please contact Selibon.
Our food, construction materials, devices, cars, everything you can buy on Bonaire causes waste. It’s nice that it is all available but it also gives obligations. We have to ensure that our children do not get lost in the waste that we produce. Since 1953, Bonaire has been using a landfill that cannot take more waste after sixty years. While it is convenient to simply throw away all your waste and have it collected each week, our landfill is quickly running out of space.
Research has shown that, for our own health, we cannot let this waste grow any further. Unfortunately, our beautiful Bonaire is too small to process this waste on its own, and large factories are needed. Yet the companies outside Bonaire who can digest our waste charge per kilo if it is supplied separately. We have to all do our part to reduce waste, including appropriate recycling wherever possible. Provided we are willing to make a little effort ourselves, processing Bonaire’s waste doesn’t have to cost anything extra.
Help save the environment and you will save the future! Bring your sorted waste to the Plasa Medio Ambiente, Kaya Industria 25 for recycling and further handling.
