El Alamo is made up of 60 members who recycle a total of 200 tons per month, keeping these recyclables from going to the landfill. The government of Buenos Aires is planning on building an underground tunnel that would reduce the size of El Alamo Cooperative and would make it impossible for the waste pickers to continue working there. Given the social and environmental service that the cooperative performs, its members ask that the government relocate the cooperative to Av. de los Constituyentes 6259/71, a government-owned building. Please add your signature to the petition created by members of El Alamo Cooperative.
