Tulum in the market for a new landfill before its international airport begins operating

Tulum, Q.R. — The municipality of Tulum is in the market for a new landfill. Since landfills tend to attract a lot of birds, which are a risk factor for aircraft, the current landfill will be relocated before the opening of the Tulum Airport.

Adomaro Solís Pacheco, the General Director of Municipal Public Services of the Tulum City Council, said that “the current landfill will be moved elsewhere. This is being attended to by the Municipal Ecology Department”.

The municipality will need to find a new dumping ground before the end of the year when the new airport is scheduled to start operating. In the meantime, municipal authorities are looking for a place away from the future Felipe Carrillo Puerto Tulum International Airport, which is also a national regulation requirement.
