To reduce the large amount of garbage on the island, a plastic recycling campaign has been spearheaded by island residents. The project consists of adopting large garbage barrels where people can discard plastic bottles. The lids of all bottles are being recycled and used by Belize Interlocking Bricks & Pavers to make bricks and the bottles are sent to a recycling facility located in Ladyville Village, Belize District where they are shredded and repurposed.

According to Ray Tyree from Belize Pro Dive Center, who is spreading this project, about three months ago he had the chance to meet with Gus Tabonay in San Pedro Town, who has a plastic facility in Ladyville Village where he recycles plastic bottles. Tyree came up with the idea of having barrels at several businesses where people could dispose of their plastic bottles. Pick-ups for the plastic bottles are done every Mondays and Thursdays and the businesses are responsible for making sure the barrels stay clear of trash and has plastic bottles only. So far they are plastic recycling barrels at La Choza, Sandy Toes, Sandbar, YOLO dock, Poco Loco, Cocos Loco Beach Bar, Wild Mangos, across from San Pedro Roman Catholic School, and Crazy Canucks. If any business or person is interested in plastic recycling barrel they can contact Tyree at a-ok-services@hotmail.com or Birttney O’Daniel at 630-1241.

This is great news! Just returned from our first trip to Belize a few days ago, and was appalled at the amount of plastic, both in use by vendors, and discarded everywhere. We spoke to many people about it who also felt the same way, but didn't know how to help, so this is very encouraging news. Well done, Belize!
