San Pedro Boasts New Sunset Board Walk and Water Taxi Terminal

Residents of the Boca Del Rio Area are upset and disgusted by the messy situation that has been going on in their area. Bags and bags of garbage are being piled up in the shoreline of Boca Del Rio Area and left there for up to three days until the garbage truck picks it up.

According to a concerned resident, the garbage is being brought from north Ambergris Caye and is being dumped along the shoreline in an area where children used to play and swim. The garbage is left there for days and stray dogs and cats tear into the bags and garbage spills into the street and lagoon.

Residents of the area are not only upset for having to smell and see the disgusting garbage in the area, but are extremely concerned of health issues that are arising due to the messy conditions. They claim that more flies are infesting the neighborhood and causing severe allergic reactions to some of the children.

Mayor Danny stated that the San Pedro Town Council will take necessary measures to ensure that this stops and conduct inspections so as to identify who is carrying out these illegal dumping of garbage.

The general public is asked to report any similar incidents such as this one to the San Pedro Town Council so that matters can be dealt with accordingly and in a timely manner. The phone number for the SPTC Office is 226-2198.
