“We only join in what corresponds to us, which is the tourist strip, which is the entire boardwalk, historic center, the area of ​​cerritos that many times on weekends is in critical conditions of contamination, so it is a multidisciplinary operation of RCU, all urban solid waste ”.

The official said that the fines will vary for the recurrence of those who have already been called attention to leave trash, and will also depend on how much they left and the damage they caused.
