Trash and Lack of Facilities

Just a tidbit of info: Seven years ago, many of us here in La Ropa met with the "colonia" and city officials. We residents all chipped in for the purchase of approximately 12-15 garbage receptacles to be placed at intervals along the beach. They were, and the city promised to look after emptying them; I believe they committed to twice a day during high vacation times. About a month later I noticed the garbage receptables were all gone and I asked the president of the colonia at that time what had happened to them. I was told the restaurant owners on the beach didn't want them.

You were told by whom? Did you confirm that with the restaurant owners? I suspect what the restaurant owners didn't want were unsightly overflowing garbage containers in the zona federal that they were paying for.

Over 20 years ago a local civic organization also put garbage cans on La Ropa Beach. They were always overflowing with garbage and rarely emptied. History provides valuable lessons to learn from.
