The cyclist Nairo Quintana recorded the scene: garbage thrown on the side of the road in Tuta, Boyacá, an area he passed through while training.
The cyclist Nairo Quintana, who has been training for a few weeks on the roads of Colombia, encountered a scene that is repeated on the roads, a large amount of garbage this time, on the road between Tunja and Paipa.
As he passed through the area, Quintana stopped at what he saw.
Bags and other items on the side of the road, apparently, that have been thrown from vehicles and are not discarded, come from areas close to leaving the waste at that point.
For the cyclist from Boyacá, it was necessary to call attention to the people who carry out this type of act so that it does not continue to happen.
In a video, he noted: “How about my people? All these days we have been riding in beautiful landscapes, nature, all the green of our Colombia, but it is very outrageous to find this here.”
He also commented: “We are in the Tuta sector, Boyacá. And a lot of rubbish, it’s amazing how people can throw away all the rubbish.”.
Similarly, he said that the call is for everyone in general to contribute to proper garbage management.
Many said they identified with Nairo Quintana’s indignation, since these types of events are more common than they should be, many highways in the country are taken as garbage dumps by old people and even adjacent communities.
Call to conscience! The one just done by the cyclist from Boyacá Nairo Quintana who today found a lot of garbage dumped in one of the properties that are close to the road between Tunja and Paipa, exactly close to the steel sector.

It was learned that after knowing the complaint of the cyclist Nairo Quintana in social networks, the municipal Mayor’s Office of Tuta, Boyacá, sent to review what was happening.
At that time, cleaning was done, but new reports have arrived that people are returning to leave waste in the area.
