The approach of the methodology was mixed, with emphasis on exploratory and descriptive studies from a non-experimental design. This research found that most ecological collectors do not have an adequate level of knowledge about biosecurity measures when collecting garbage, they report that they do not have all the appropriate tools for biosecurity barriers, which leads to the appearance of digestive affections in 47% and influenza in 39%.
