Masalah ini sebagian besar berasal dari anak sungai Rio Motagua, yang dikenal sebagai Rio Las Vacas, yang diapit oleh tempat pembuangan sampah perkotaan di utara Guatemala City dan juga mengalami pembuangan limbah tanpa izin.

The Ocean Cleanup sekarang telah memasang pagar rantai yang membentang di sepanjang Rio Las Vacas, membuat semacam bendungan untuk menghentikan sampah sebelum mencapai batang sungai.
