Horrible Trash Problem - 03/12/08 08:33 PM

I don't know about you, but I like candy sometimes. Not often, but sometimes I like to eat Skittles.

How about you?

Re: Horrible Trash Problem - 03/13/08 01:58 PM

This whole trash thing has gotten me thinking. I pay a pittance for my property tax to San Pedro Town Board. For that I receive garbage collection every other day, someone weed whacks and tidies our street every fortnight and we have good street lighting. I live in a residential neighbourhood and have more than one neighbour who allows their dog to trash every rubbish bin, every night. We all take responsibility for our neighbourhood and when we see garbage, we pick it up. Our street is clean and lovely.

If any of you have ever been to residential areas of London (not the pretty touristy areas), you'll see awful trash problems. We paid obscene amounts of money in property(council) tax there. Our rubbish there is now collected every two weeks. In parts of the area, trash floats around your ankles like tiny tumbleweeds and it is common knowledge that in London, you're never more than a few feet from a rat. Street lighting is intermittent at best in some areas.

I wonder why I live here.

Bobber, Bobber, Bobber I leave you for 2 weeks and look what happens. What the heck is the thread?????? Don't where to post this.
I have the SP Blues. I got back to my old home at 2 a.m. this morning and really miss my new home. Yes the beer was terrible and I had to drink it all to save everyone else and the same with the food. Didn't have one good meal and eat 4 times a day. Thanks for everthing everone, it was really wonderful. It may take me a week to do a trip report and tag the 225 pictures I took.

Well I flew in on Tan Sasha, it landed in San Pedro Sula first back in those days. Everyone for Honduras got off the plane then they came aboard with surgical masks in place and sprayed the plane down for bugs??? Oh well I am still alive and only glow in the dark after a litre of Vodka has been consumed...

Tim, I was sorry I didn't get to meet you when we were in over Thanksgiving. I did make it a point to ask for you, was told you were out for the day and would be in the next day. The next day they told me you were gone for the holidays. Just wanted to shake your hand, as you were one of the folks in the golf cart incident. I like stand up people. Maybe next time.

Re: Horrible Trash Problem - 03/15/08 06:42 PM

Dear Members,
There is a rising interest in cleaning up our island.
One suggestion I liked especially for out-of-town areas, if some of you would consider it:
There is an amazing number of people (both locals & tourists) that walk along our roads and beaches that are willing to pick up trash as they go by, but need a place to put it.
Would landowners and resorts be willing to put a trash container on road and/or beach as your property is being passed? The Chamber would be willing to find containers and support this, but I think each of the property owners would prefer to put something that fits their style and décor. Those of you in condos could ask that your development support this.
Then we would ask that the land owner periodically see that these cans would be emptied and put with their regular trash.
The amount of garbage may be somewhat overwhelming at first, but over time would settle down to an acceptable level.
Please consider doing this, and if you make this effort, please email the Chamber at: [email protected] so we can announce the locations.
Having faith in people, I really think we will be amazed at the amount picked up by a variety of people that really care.
Thank you,
Tom
