Prior to the start of the cleanup, the Chemist thanked the employees of all the municipal councils and paramunicipals, for joining forces to improve the image of Mazatlan, where the waves break, and invited the public to join this type of actions .
“That is the idea, that the citizen joins, but not in this campaign that we are going to undertake now, I ask everyone to clean the area of your home, to all citizens, not to take out the garbage until go to the truck, because there are people who take it a day before and gives a bad image as a tourist destination, “he said.
