Since 2016 we have been thinking about how to help the community of Santa Cruz del Este eliminate a huge open-air dump that had occupied its entrance for several decades. With the support of Fospuca and the Mayor's Office of Baruta as well as the suggestions and contributions of the residents of Santa Cruz, the project finally became a reality. Equalizing the quality of services such as waste management between the barrio -which is part of the city- and other urbanizations is an important gesture of integration in the city by equating.

A shed encloses two waste containers, surrounded by a plaza with planters, a pergola, a stage for concerts and a cross that gives its name to the neighborhood. The project builds on the experience of the Calle Salom in La Palomera, where the container was replaced by lush planters in December 2020.
