By Benjamin Flowers: In a show of civic pride, a group of students from the Adventure and Ecotourism course at Sacred Heart Junior College conducted a riverside cleanup over the weekend along the banks of the Macal River in San Ignacio, Cayo, and erected signs encouraging the public to dispose of litter properly.
The students erected the signs as a part of their course in collaboration with their instructor Andy Bahadur. The students made the signs mostly from materials benign recycled or repurposed for their initiative.
“There have been several cleanup campaigns in the area but the littering seems to continue unabated. It is our hope that having these signs posted in these areas will assist in reducing the amount of trash which accumulates at the riverside and eventually ends up in the river,” the school explained.
The students also collaborated with the Mayor of San Ignacio/Santa Elena (SISE), Earl Trapp, and councilor for sanitation, Omar Rodriguez on the project. Plans are also underway to install garbage drums in the area and the school is also working with the SISE Town Council to have the garbage in the area routinely picked up.
“We urge all residents of San Ignacio/Santa Elena and visitors to the riverside to please keep the area clean and dispose of garbage properly,” the school added.
