more than 4000 tons of garbage removed from the streets of Canoas in July – Municipality of Canoas

The Cleaning Shock operation accounted for the removal of 4,673 tons of garbage from the city’s streets in the month of July. In all, 606 trucks of rubble, leftover works, vegetation and other materials were collected, which should be properly disposed of in the city’s Ecopoints.

The director of Shock Cleaning, Márcio Bittencourt, reinforces the importance of working together to keep the city clean.” We need the population to help with this work, we have Ecopoints precisely for correct disposal. Currently, even with the Cleaning Shock, it is often difficult to keep the city as clean as we wish”, he highlighted.

The Municipality of Canoas reinforces: in addition to harming the environment and urban living, the irregular disposal of waste on streets, sidewalks, squares, public or private land and ditches is ILLEGAL. The violator is subject to progressive fines from R$ 746.86, in addition to the obligation to remove and dispose of waste properly, according to the Municipal Urban Cleaning Code.

Keeping the city clean is everyone’s responsibility. The 5 Ecopoints are open daily (including Saturdays, Sundays and holidays), from 8 am to 12 pm and from 1 pm to 6 pm.
