Costa Rica has entered the book of Guinness Record while becoming the first country to gather 25 tons of plastic (PET y HDPE), in under 8 hours. This record was previously held by India which had gathered 23.5 tons in less than 8 hours. The recollection process was videotaped to guarantee the transparency and joined efforts in early December 2018.

The goal of becoming World Recycling Champion was achieved with the Ecolones program which gathers private companies, local governments, public organizations and institutions like Grupo ICE (Institute of Costa Rican Electricity).
