Puerto Vallarta’s garbage woes could be ending

The battle between the city of Puerto Vallarta and contracted waste management companies that have left the city with unreliable sanitation services for years could be coming to an end.

The city of Puerto Vallarta has debuted new garbage trucks expected to be in service early January 2016. Currently the trucks are receiving painting of the municipality logo and being prepared to begin service.

Trash collection in the city has suffered with accusations of contracts awarded to friends and family members of previous city administrators, no-bid contracts, corruption, and city refusal to pay the contracts, all creating unreliable services in the city.

Earlier solutions allowed for garbage pickup every three days in most colonies throughout the city using only a couple of city owned trucks, but many colonies still experienced two or more weeks without service.
