Public Consultation For San Pedro’s Solid Waste Management Project

The Government of Belize has proposed to implement a project to improve solid waste management practices in four municipalities of the Western Corridor of Belize (San Pedro Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, Belize City and San Ignacio/Santa Elena) that will support the goals of environmental protection, natural resource conservation, and protection of public health, safety and welfare.

A public consultation took place on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, and the project plan was presented by Mr. Gilroy Lewis, Project Director at Belize Solid Waste Management Authority. In his presentation he stated all the reasons why the project is important, including environmental protection, natural resource conservation, and protection of public health, safety and welfare.

Mr. Lewis also shared that an average household on island of San Pedro throws out 0.43Kg/Day and businesses throw out 0.60Kg/Day. A total of daily waste collected in San Pedro is 23.7 tons. This number was gathered in a survey conducted by Hydroplan in 2011 and also revealed that 52% of garbage collected was biodegradable, 38% of people questioned stated that they do not sort out their garbage, 75% of the people stated that they are satisfied with the garbage collection process on the island and 46% of the people agreed that we should pay a fee for garbage collection, 38% of which agreed to a $10-15 cost and 27% agreed to a $16 – 20 cost.
