Garbage has always been the number one problem in Punta Gorda town and is constantly left unattended. The current waste management system being implemented in Punta Gorda is ineffective; reason being is that garbage is being picked up once a week, not nearly enough for the amount of garbage being generated in PG on a weekly basis. This Garbage however gets dump carelessly in the water hole area, where residents reside. Making the living environment hazardous for the people living there. The Garbage dumped is less than a mile away from the Rio Grande River; this however then travels to the sea and affects our Marine Environment.
