The San Pedro Town Council is embarking on an island-wide, extensive and thorough clean up campaign. In this spirit, we ask that all businesses do their part to keep their surroundings clean, dispose or garbage properly and secure garbage bins from stray animals and the elements. We take this time to strongly urge both active and inactive construction sites to dispose of their debris in a timely manner and to keep this debris onsite. The streets and beaches will no longer cater for the storage or disposal of this debris or construction material. Several of our departments will be asked to help monitor and report these cases. Feel free to contact us for any questions or concerns. It is our collective duty to Keep La Isla Bonita Clean!

SPTC plans on tackling the island's ongoing garbage problem

The improper disposal of garbage on the island has been a long-standing issue. Multiple clean-up campaigns have been done in the past, but the problem persists. To continue tackling the problem, the new San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) is committed to an island-wide, extensive, and thorough clean-up campaign with the idea of involving all key stakeholders on the island. The SPTC now plans to enforce existing regulations, including but not limited to the construction debris storage/disposal method currently practiced on the island.

On Friday, January 28th, the SPTC announced this new initiative and called on all businesses to do their part and keep their surroundings clean, dispose of garbage properly and secure garbage bins from stray animals and the elements. Another issue discussed was the debris disposal and storage of both active and inactive construction sites. Contractors are to keep this debris on site and dispose of it promptly. Additionally, streets and beaches are not be used to store disposed of construction debris. Several SPTC departments will help monitor and report any breaches to enforce this new regulation.
