The Belize City Council carried out a citywide clean-up campaign “Labour for Belize” on this year’s labour day. There were a total of 528 registered participants that cleaned up areas on both the North and South sides of the city. Apart from simply cleaning up the city, participants also painted and beautified the areas.

Areas that were cleaned included Faber’s Road, the Civic Center area on Jude Street, Albert and Regent streets, and the cemetery at Yarborough. The Bel-China bridge was given a fresh coat of paint along with the Lake Independence basketball court and football field, the Armadillo playground, the Belize sign, the Baron Bliss Lighthouse, Cemetery Road to Albert and Orange Streets, the Northern Highway, and trees in the Buttonwood Bay area.

Labor for Belize is the brainchild of Mayor Darrel Bradley and this year marked the 6th such event under his leadership. Bradley has said that the idea is to have more community participation in the city to have residents have a better sense of belonging to the city.
