Good day everyone, Our garbage compactors were unable to come out in the morning for the daily pick-up of household waste due to mechanical problems; however, they will be collecting household waste in TOWN CORE up until this afternoon. To carry on quickly, we will be closing off sections of the street where the garbage compactor will be passing through. We kindly ask all drivers and pedestrians for their cooperation and understanding during this time.

Individual homeowners responsible for disposal of large items

One of the biggest challenges the San Pedro Town Council faces is the collection and disposal of solid waste (garbage). Most garbage is comprised of daily household generated waste, but at times may include old mattresses, refrigerators, stoves, sofas, air conditioners and other large items. These items are not collected by the sanitation workers, and as such, residents are asking whose responsibility it is for their disposal.

According to San Pedro Town Councilor Kenrick Brackett, whose responsibility is the town’s Sanitation, while the collection and the daily disposal of garbage is the responsibility of the municipality, it does not include discarding large appliances and items. “We cannot do everything. Individually, we all need to take some level of responsibility to move these big items,” stated Brackett. He explained that the council does have someone that collects these types of large items, but it is not a responsibility of the council. “We collect these items on a case by case basis and from time to time – sometimes once per month, depending on the amount we’ve observe gathering. But I want to stress that it is not our responsibility.”

Brackett also said that in the past, The San Pedro Town Council has conducted cleanup campaigns targeting the collection of these large items in an effort to help residents. “There are privately owned freight trucks that do these types of collection for a small fee. Our residents need to have a bit of pride and own up to some level of responsibility, because we cannot do all.”

The San Pedro Town Council is suggesting that before these items are placed outside the property for disposal, that homeowners should contact the council to try and coordinate if it can be collected. In the event that council cannot collect these large items at the given time, the council advises homeowners to contact the private freight services.
