I've noticed by the Caye Caulker Village Council Office, a bunch of brand new, wooden garbage boxes.
I am speculating that they are to be placed throughout the island.
I know that they also have a truck that goes around cleaning up and collecting garbage throughout the island on a regular basis.
However, property owners are responsible for dumping their own trash.
We hire a local 'garbage man' or Cart Guy to do a weekly dumping of our trash, only to be informed by the Village Council Garbage Truck Driver that they have found the trash any place but at the Dump - sometimes under overturned boats on the beach, in the bush etc...??...
The Village Council Truck Driver has taken to digging through the trash to identify whose trash it is and informing them that it was found no where near the dump. They do this to identify who the (not quite)'Trash Guy' is.
It is a problem, no doubt. Hopefully we will see a cleaner Caye Caulker when the New Garbage Boxes go out.
