The Belmopan City Council is responsible for the proper administration of the City and all its assets. We try to ensure that the laws are being kept in reference to Trade License; Liquor License, Building and Traffic Management among other things. However, one of our greatest responsible is to ensure proper drainage and refuse management. The Council is responsible to ensure that all legislation in regards to refuse pick up are implemented e.g. Litter ticketing. Garbage are picked up from Belmopan Proper on Mondays and Thursdays, Wednesdays in the Zones, i.e. Las Flores, Salvapan, Maya Mopan, San Martin and Riviera. On Saturday garbage collection is done in the Commercial Area. Refuse and Debris Collection is done every thirty (30) days, i.e., 15th of each month since August 2005. Besides garbage and refuse disposal the department is also responsible for the removal of Construction Waste, Derelict Vehicle, small and large animal carcass.
Refuse/tree branches etc., are collected between the 15th to the 18th day of every month. Residents should put out such refuse/tree branches etc. by the 14th day of each month. A fee between $50.00 to $150.00 will be charged for the removal of any refuse/ tree branches etc. that is put out on any street buffer or public place outside of the regular collection period which is between 15th to 18th day of each month.
