The Belize Tourism Board Green Team, North Ambergris Caye & Middle Island Neighborhood Watch and the San Pedro Town Board continues cleanup campaign in Northern San Pedro - Belize City, Belize – September 12, 2011 – Saturday, September 3, 2011, witnessed the execution of the second of a series of cleanup campaigns planned for Northern Ambergris Caye. Carried out under the aegis of the Belize Tourism Board (BTB)’s Green Team, the SPTB, and North Ambergris Caye & Middle Island Neighborhood Watch, Saturday’s initiative tackled/addressed the garbage situation that lined the road from Capricorn Resort up to Journey’s End.
With the large amount of household garbage, construction waste, plastics, metals, and even household appliances found along the road, the team—after half day (nonstop) work, hauled away four truckloads of 55 gallon garbage bags (of pollutants/waste found in the area).
