Recycling is easy at Bonaire’s Plasa Medio Ambiente.
Many visitors to Bonaire do not realize that the island has an active recycling center. Visitors are encouraged to recycle just as much as residents.
Plasa Medio Ambiente is the main recycling center.
The Plasa Medio Ambiente is centrally located at Kaya Industria #20, right next to Warehouse Supermarket. The center is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM straight through until 4:00 PM, and on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Products which can be dropped off for recycling include plastic, glass, metal, oil, paper, cardboard, electronics, batteries, or oil. If you have an item and you are not sure if the center will accept it, just give them a call at 717-8159 to ask.
Neighborhood drop-off locations are available all over Bonaire.
In addition to the full recycling facility, there are drop-spots all over Bonaire for various types of glass, as well as for cardboard, cans, or plastics. Many are located in or near the parking lots of supermarkets and also some restaurants or snacks.
