Burning Trash

A major environmental and health problem here is the burning of trash in poor neighborhoods - which includes the neighborhood, where I live. Every night riding my bike home, leaving the city and heading into my neighborhood, I can smell the burning plastic, wood and trash. Trash collection doesn't exist in the poorer neighborhoods and the piles are mountainous, even with the burning. The trash accumulation problem irks Horacio the most out of all the environmental problems in La Plata, so he is trying to focus more projects at Biosfera on addressing this issue. We'll see if the government gets involved with this and if anything changes...
