By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing (MIDH) says cleaning garbage thrown along the country’s highways and roads slows down cutting of roadside vegetation.
For a while now the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing has been working on public awareness regarding garbage that is thrown on the roadside either by passengers off moving vehicles or purposely discarded in greater amounts rather than disposing of it properly.
“Yes, it’s garbage just thrown on our roadsides for somebody else to pick up, and it really makes us angry,” said the MIDH in a social media post on Thursday.
“Our Road Maintenance Unit have had to use a lot of their time picking up and bagging garbage, which means that it takes much longer to do the vegetation control which keeps our roadsides pristine.”
In this particular post, the MIDH shows photographs of garbage strewn along the San Victor – San Narciso Road in Corozal.
“Garbage on our major highways is much worse,” said the MIDH.
“Let’s all play our role in beautifying Belize,” the Ministry implored.
