The San Pedro, Ambergris Caye community is invited to participate in a beach clean up day on Saturday, June 13, 2009. Please meet on the beach in front of the Central Park at 8:00a.m. to be assigned a clean-up location. Teams will be formed to pick up litter in target areas of Ambergris Caye. The goal is to have a large number of people participate in order to maximize the area of beach that can be cleared free of litter.
Each person will be given latex gloves to protect their hands from the litter they will be collecting. Each group will be given trash bags and instructions for collecting. The San Pedro Town Council will help to dispose of the collected garbage.

Take pride in the natural beauty of Ambergris and help keep the beach a place for all to enjoy. Letís all pitch in and help keep our environment and home beautiful! (For more information or to volunteer call Jeff 628-8220, YWAM Ė Destination Paradise with the San Pedro Town Council.)

A Beach Clean-Up is a good 'Community Service' thing to do don't you agree?

Did it happen and how many bags did they get?

When we cleaned the south end - beach and road we had a few dump truck loads of debris plus over 100 large heavy duty sacks of trash.

Each week I clean a few hundred feet of beach by my house and usually get at least a kitchen bag worth of plastic, glass etc.

It's amazing how much trash accumulates on our beaches and streets - and all it would take would be for a few hundred people to take one bag and fill it per week and we might have the trash under control.

i don't know how it all ends up in the water, but it' a shame people don't have the common sense, respect, knowledge, or whatever it is, to not throw trash on the roads to begin with!?
it just drives me nuts to watch Styrofoam chicken boxes fly from the windows of buses and cars. or someone drop it right where they stand,, with a trash can 20 feet away.
did no one teach them any different?

Their Mama didn't raise them right! Barn its never gona change.
I know this group of people that all pray for the same thing.'Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can, and
Wisdom to know the difference.
I clean up some times and do beach clean up campaigns but nothing gona change the illitterate.
