Did you know that.....

  • On Curaçao we produce more than 143.000 tons of waste per year.
  • Trash provides breeding grounds for rats, cockroaches and other pests that can have negative effects on your health.
  • Clean communities promote a positive community identity that can result in increased economic development.
  • Waste can cause local pollution that can affect you directly.

We need to look at ways to minimize our impact on the environment.

That’s why Selikor created our Waste Drop-Off Center! To make people more aware of recycling, Selikor constructed our Waste Drop-Off Center located at the Malpais Landfill where you can drop-off your sorted recyclable waste.


What is Selikor’s Waste Drop-Off Center?

This facility makes it easier for people and companies to separate their recyclable wastes that are accepted by Selikor. So there’s no need to drive all the way to the back to deposit your wastes in the landfill. Selikor’s Waste Drop-Off Center is a drive-through, where you can simply drive your vehicle through and stop at the appropriate container for each different type of recyclable waste. There are signs at each container indicating which recyclable waste can be put therein. You should separate your wastes before arriving at Selikor’s Waste Drop-Off Center.
