Here’s the gist
- Public organic waste bins throughout town
- Private pickup options also available
Municipalidad del Cusco has no residential food scrap pick-up service as part of its regular waste collection services.
Some public areas of Cusco have a dedicated organics waste bin. See Mercado San Blas and some of the plazas within Centro Histórico. Unfortunately these bins are often contaminated with other rubbish.
That said, Municipalidad del Cusco is making strides with its Qosqo Recicla programme. Pop-up information sessions are often provided in local plazas, such as Plaza San Francisco.
Qosqomposta offers a residential and business organic waste collection service. You can often find their bins in the foyers of apartment complexes within Centro Histórico.
