North AC gets another cleanup


The Belize Tourism Board Green Team, North Ambergris Caye & Middle Island Neighborhood Watch and the San Pedro Town Board continues cleanup campaign in Northern San Pedro

Press Release – September 12, 2011 – Saturday, September 3, 2011, witnessed the execution of the second of a series of cleanup campaigns planned for Northern Ambergris Caye. Carried out under the aegis of the Belize Tourism Board (BTB)’s Green Team, the SPTB, and North Ambergris Caye & Middle Island Neighborhood Watch, Saturday’s initiative tackled/addressed the garbage situation that lined the road from Capricorn Resort up to Journey’s End.

With the large amount of household garbage, construction waste, plastics, metals, and even household appliances found along the road, the team — after half day of work – hauled away four truckloads of 55 gallon garbage bags of pollutants found in the area

All the partners in making this initiative a success would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all those who contributed to the campaign’s success:

• San Pedro Town Board
• Sandy Point Resorts
• Tony from The Hotel
• Las Terrazas
• BTB’s Green Team
• UB Environmental Club Members
• Star Stapleton
• Jim and Nicky of the Iguana House
• Bob Campbell/Indigo Resort
• Mario of Belizean Reef
• Scott and Jody Harnish – NACNW
• Tammy Peterson – Clean Team Motivator
• Nano Gurerro – Town Councilor
• Severo Gurerro – Town Councilor
• Fidel Ancona – Road Project Consultant

The work continues on September 17 where the team will focus on the area from Indigo up north. In addition, the SPTB will also establish weekly garbage pickup of thrash on North Ambergris Caye. Mr. Severo Guerrero noted “We invite other members of the community to keep Ambergris Caye clean and dispose of garbage in the appropriate manner. This means residents, developers and visitors as well.”
