What to do with Garbage?


Hola everyone. What should we do with garbage after our camping trip. I only can figure two options. Burn it or throw it down a well that's a few hundred yards away. I guess we could leave it like the locals, so that's 3 options. Which one do you esteemed members recommend?

#4 Pack it out with you. Leave No Trace. This should always be your #1 solution!!!!

John

P.S. If you find any guide sticks from bottle rockets, they were left by JZ!!!!

Where are you camping? How are you camping? Remote back country or on turista beaches? What do you do with trash at home?

Lots of personal questions. Maybe you have bad intentions.

You can burn the garbage and paper then haul the cans out and drop them off at the first trash can you come to. I know there are those on here that say don't burn trash and I say burning is better than littering.

I just kind of want to be like the locals. You know, when in Rome? We figure just leave it and somebody else will have to deal with it.

JZ had the absolute best idea! Someone will be happy to get some extra cash.

Leave it with any person's trash if it is in a bag.

Ask where the local dump is...sometimes it is very close.

I think this was such a cool thread question.

Reminds me of a time I put some trash in a can going thru
San Juan de Los Planes, the home owner came out cursing,
probably best to find business dumpster or City placed one.
OP, like your signature

Hpefully there is a dumpster near the bridge you live under!

I have used Pemex dumpsters (with permission) more than a couple of times. If it is my garbage, I tip. If I picked up other peoples trash, I tell them "Basura desde la playa', and they usually let me toss it in, sometimes with a thank you!




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

I am always amazed at the amount of trash gringos bring down in the form of plastic containers they buy food in. People that stay at our Inn generate more garbage in a day or two than we do in a week or two!
Please think twice about bringing all that trash down here!y

Natives pay taxes for garbage pick up...or some just chuck their garbage in an arroyo. Tourists arent natives and should deal with their garbage fairly. Find out where the dump is and take it there or give a family some pesos and use their trash can or buy their gas to take yours to the dump.

I marvel at the thought process some genius had to place trash cans along highway 1 in the middle of nowhere with no pick up service planned. And then the dominos begin to fall when the next marooon puts trash in them which the wind and the animals scatter to the surrounding desert.

Use your head. Both of them if necessary!
