    Dominican National Brewery Awards Municipalities
    Santo Domingo, november1 de 2017

    The Dominican National Brewery awarded municipalities throughout the country in commemoration of the National Day of Cleanliness, which was celebrated for the very first time in the Dominican Republic on September 16th following the implementation of the National Plan for the Comprehensive Management of Solid Waste; Dominicana Limpia.

    Held under the framework of the environmental program Dominicana Limpia, which aims to bring about a culture of recycling in Dominican society, the awards were the result of a competition launched by the Dominican National Brewery and the 17 municipalities in which the public-private initiative was initially undertaken.

    The winning municipalities in this first competition were: Verón, Boca Chica, Cotuí, and Puerto Plata, all of which received special tickets for this year’s Festival Presidente.

    Yoryi Bisonó, general coordinator of Dominicana Limpia, stated that “the competition, supported by the Dominican National Brewery, was divided in two areas: the first, for the purposes of recognizing the town which filled the most trash bundles during the day, and the second, to award the four municipalities with the most creative recycled material-made murals.”

    Verón, the Top Collector
    Ramón Ramírez, Mayor of the municipality of Verón, in La Altagracia province, explained that upon receiving the invitation to participate in the competition, he “relayed the message to schools, neighborhood associations, and directly to youngsters, who took up the task of collection, filling a total of 35 trash bundles, greatly exceeding the 10 sacks delivered to each municipality.”

    Boca Chica, Beyond Tourism
    Radhamés Castro, Mayor of Boca Chica, indicated that “the recycling of applicable materials is already being carried out in Boca Chica because educational initiatives begun by the promoters of Dominicana Limpia are already reaching households. To be one of the winners for the best mural is a cause for additional motivation for administrators and the mayor’s office to tap into the huge potential that exists throughout the municipality.”

    Cotuí, the Mural of Unity
    Teresa Ynoa, Mayor of Cotuí, stated that the introduction of Dominicana Limpia to her municipality has greatly benefitted the local administration. “We have addressed recycling issues before, but after becoming a member of the program, we have seen a greater impact in our efforts that materialized during preparation for the mural; which brought together the entire community.”

    Dominicana Limpia is a social and environmental public-private alliance that addresses the recollection and final disposal of solid waste, the establishment of recycling and collection centers, and educational opportunities for citizens. It aims to be a pillar of civic sustainability over time.
