In Belize there are no standard waste collection vehicles. Across the country, waste is collected in various types of vehicles ranging from dump trucks, pickups, tractor trailer and compactor trucks.
The BSWaMA is not directly involved in the waste collection aspect of solid waste management. The SWMP beneficiary municipalities or the Contractors to the municipalities are responsible for the collection of solid waste and subsequent haulage to the Transfer Stations.
Residents are encouraged to bag their garbage and place it in a covered garbage container. Yard clippings/green waste should be bagged or bundled for ease of collection. Tree limbs should be no longer than 4 ft in length.
