Garbage Service

4 posts in this topic

Does the property owner have to take care of waste removal himself or is there garbage service from the city? Or does the subdivision caring for that? How will that work and how much will it cost?

There is no garbage service available from the city, but the subdivision will provide a weekly garbage removal service. The residents may use the service but are not obligated to.

If the owner decides to use it, it will be his responsibility to separate plastic, glass, paper, organic waste and trash into separate bins.

At this point, I don’t have any information about the pricing, but I know it will be very reasonable.

Sorting waste into different elements is an excellent idea. In self-sustainable subdivision like this one vast part of waste could be turned into valuable organic fertilizer. It could be used back on the property, improving the soil and increasing production of the farm.

When we get to where we are 100 percent off grid, nothing will be wasted. Even the cow poop can be used for methane gas generation, then for fertilizer. With no cans, glass, paper, or plastic coming in the gate, 99% of trash is eliminated.

    • No, I have not had any problems from the Chilean side of the import. The delay is because of the lock downs in the countries we order from. Many can not come out to work, and many are understaffed..... The whole chain is broken, and everyone needs more time to finish a task.
    • Is the reason for the delay because Chile is now strict with import?
    • You are right. Personally, it did not affect us much. We do miss going out for dinner or go to Santiago to watch a movie, but oh well, that is not a huge loss.
      Did it affect the project? Definitely! Many containers that we were supposed to get from China and Europe have been delayed a lot. Some have already arrived, but some are still not here.
    • So it seems that the coronavirus did not affect you guys much. Did it change or affect the project?
    • No, most restaurants are closed. There are some open, but no sit-in dining is available. You can order and take it with you. Some restaurants offer deliveries as well.
