The sanitation department of the island is feeling the pressure with the growing amounts of garbage being produced.

To meet these demands of garbage collection, the San Pedro Town Council has acquired four garbage compactors, one of which was delivered to the island today, April 19, 2016. San Pedro Mayor Danny Guerrero and Deputy Mayor Gary Greif were on hand at the unveiling and indicated that the service vehicle will be put to use immediately.

The new compactor joins two other compactors that are already in use for garbage collection. Once complete, the fleet will boast six garbage compactors with the addition of two more dump trucks that will be added to the sanitation department.
