There were bottles, glass, plastic bags, aluminum and processed wood. Human bodies arrived there too.

Getting rid of the garbage thrown into rivers by individuals, whole families and industries requires daily work and a great investment by the Costa Rican Electricity Institute and CNFL. Adding to the costs of living in Costa Rica.

¢33.5 million was spent in removing debris last year alone. It must be done in order to prevent clogging of the metal structures that filter the water and prevent the decomposition of the power generation turbines.

These reservoirs create 72% of the energy and are a clean source, emitting only 16% of the sector’s greenhouse gases.

Garbage jamming the systems would mean shutting down the plants and producing less energy.
