Sunday, the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) campus stadium will be the arrival point of the Mexico City International Recycling Marathon, where two machines will be placed where more than 100,000 people are expected to deposit their recyclable waste.
The two Innovabox recycling machines will be placed in the Banorte kiosk, at Gate 7 of the stadium, so that athletes and assistants can deposit PET, aluminum or tin containers that they have used to rehydrate themselves during the race.
The event is expected to replicate the success achieved in the Mexico City Half Marathon, held last July, which collected more than 2,000 containers in just four hours.
“We are happy to contribute to the task of recycling PET, aluminum or tin containers for the care of the environment,” said Eduardo Bustamante, Innovation Box Group (Innovabox) director.
The Mexico City International Recycling Marathon is a race held every year since 1983 and runs 42 kilometers of streets and avenues of the capital, from the Hemicycle to Benito Juárez, in the Historic Center, to the University Olympic Stadium, in the south.
On this occasion, there will be 40,000 runners who will participate in the sporting event.
