Residents and visitors in the charming colonia of Versalles, Puerto Vallarta enjoy city garbage collection three days a week; Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and typically after 2:00 p.m.

Residents also love the unique street sound that signals the imminent arrival of the truck. It’s one of many sounds that echo throughout Puerto Vallarta’s concrete and cobblestone neighbourhoods, adding color and charm from dawn to dusk.
