Welcome to Blancos


Blancos is an organization comprised of youths/students who are committed to promoting sustainable waste management practices and reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfills. Through our door-to-door collection services, community outreach efforts, and partnerships with local organizations and businesses, we aim to make recycling accessible and convenient for everyone.


  • To keep the environment clean and hygienic.
  • To protect natural resources and reduce environmental pollution thus preventing the spread of disease and infection.
  • To recover materials that can be reused or recycled.
  • To support waste management systems and ensure proper disposal of waste.

The goal of waste collection is to promote public health and safety, protect the environment, and minimize the negative impact of waste on society.

Benefits Of Waste Collection

Environmental protection: Recycling helps to conserve natural resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and preserve wildlife habitats by reducing the need for new raw materials.

Energy conservation: Recycling aluminum, for example, requires 95% less energy than producing new aluminum from raw materials..

Job creation: The waste management and recycling industry provides jobs in areas such as collection, processing, and manufacturing..

Economic benefits: Recycling can reduce the costs of waste management and create new business opportunities and revenue streams.

Improved public health: Proper waste management can help to prevent the spread of disease by reducing the presence of waste in communities.

Increased resource efficiency: By recovering and reusing valuable materials, recycling helps to conserve finite resources and reduce the need to extract new raw materials.

Reduction in pollution: Recycling helps to reduce the environmental pollution associated with the extraction, production, and transportation of new raw materials.
