As part of the environmental commitment, a recycling program is being implemented in the Asada through a small environmental waste center; people can leave cans, glass, plastic bottles, paperboard and tetracpack. Municipality of Santa Cruz is in charge of taking the recoverable waste every fifteen days, they take it to their environmental technology park in Santa Cruz, where they recycle the materials.
As part of environmental responsibility, in 2021 Surfside’s ASADA assumes the coordination of Ecological Blue Flag Committee of Potrero Beach, formed by Marina Development Group, Bahía del Sol Hotel, Flamingo Coast Guards, Alpha Company and Municipality of Santa Cruz.
The committee’s objective is maintaining the excellence in the hygienic and sanitary conditions of the beach, through an annual work plan in which different aspects are evaluated by the Costa Rican Institute of Tourism, such as the quality of water from the sea, quality of water for human consumption, organic waste, presence of garbage cans on the beach, environmental education, reforestation campaigns, solid waste management, safety, among others.
