City Council holds Christmas clean-up

Story Picture
There are sixteen more days to go before Christmas and there’s a lot of house and yard cleaning yet to be done. But don’t worry this weekend the Belize City Council will be helping you to haul away all the garbage from in front of your house, free of cost. According to David Fonseca, City Councilor in charge of sanitation, there are two specific reasons why the council started the Christmas clean-up campaign back in 1990.

“One, we know that there are a lot of accumulated debris in individual residents yards and one, we want to assist in cleaning that up. And two, with that built up of debris in the yard we also attract things like rats, roaches. So we want to avoid all of that happening.

Well we are asking them to get their debris, their waste outside of the daily garbage to have it prepared and ready to pick up by the City Council workers by this weekend.”

The clean up, which gets underway from seven Saturday and Sunday mornings, will start off from the southside on December twelfth. Areas that will be covered include Lake Independence, Collet and Port Loyola. On Sunday, December thirteenth, the trucks will be passing through Albert, Queen’s Square and Mesopotamia. On December nineteenth and twentieth the northside of the city will be covered. The Belize City Council will be assisted by Belize Waste Control, Belize Aggregate, Phonics Limited, Rogers and Associates, Y.E.A. and the Ministry of Works.
