Three new pick-up sites!

Tamarindo Recycles is happy to announce three new sets of barrels for community drop-off of recyclable material. All three of theses sites are located along the "Pasatiempo" road. These barrels are made of white heavy plastic and have our stickers on them. The first set is near the corner across the street from the Oveja Negra hostel. The second set of barrels, farther up the road, is in front of the empty lot across the street from La Botella de Leche. The third set is across the street from the gym on the corner near Villas Mariposa.

Please help us to keep the sites clean by bringing your material in CLOSED bags. Please bring an empty bag with you when you drop off your material and donate 5 minutes of your time to collecting loose bottles etc. from the site you use.

Remember: NO WET CARDBOARD. If it looks like rain, keep your cardboard at home.

The rainy days of October didn’t stop Tamarindo Recycles from collecting nearly 1.5 tons of material this past Saturday. Over one-hundred individuals from Tamarindo and the surrounding communities fought the potholes in the roads to bring their recyclable material to recycling day. We had a record number of volunteers from the community, Las Baulas National Marine Park, the Langosta National Wildlife Refuge and Country Day School. This recycling day also marked the first collaboration with the Municipality of Santa Cruz who sent four workers, including Engineer Berny Leal who is in charge of waste management. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a productive relationship between the committee and the Municipality.

"Trashion Fashion" Event


In order to raise money to build a collection site and raise awareness among Tamarindo residents, the Tamarindo Recycles committee is planning a recycling fashion show event entitled “Trashion Fashion.” The event is being co-organized by local designers Kata Kis, from Papaya con Leche, Petra Beuthner, of Uno Solo, and artists Jaguart.

The fashion show will feature original designs from the artists that are made from recycled material. Some designs will be extravagant and over the top, while others are items that anybody can use or wear.

The Trashion Fashion event will be held at Bar1 on September 11. Music is being done by Fabrice Vanegas. Bar1 will be donating a portion of the bar sales and additionally there will be a raffle and a cover charge benefiting the Tamarindo Recycles committee.
