Combatting Illegal Dumping – Community Meeting Tuesday For Haggatt Hall, Monroe Village, Dash Valley

Is The Island Getting Cleaner In Some Parts?

Is it my imagination, or am I starting to see a cleaner island in some parts? Perhaps wishful thinking, but we have to applaud the efforts of the Sanitation Service Authority, Ministry of the Environment, Ministry of Health and the other agencies who have been organising these town hall meetings. The people who work with waste problems every day know that it is not enough to merely clean up the mess because there will be a new mess tomorrow. We must change the public consciousness and the morality that is behind illegal dumping.

Good work, folks! Please keep it up as all Barbados appreciates your efforts.

Sanitation Service Authority

    Well done with this and the last story. It is great to hear of the good and the positive in Bim.

    On the dumping issue I believe you have a point when it comes to re-educating people.

    Barbadians NEED to start taking more responsibilty for their actions. This is not just on the issue of dumping, as it is equally well true of personal health, driving, noise….. TOO many people are living lives ignorant of their effect on others. It is time that this is stopped!

    The law can only only do so much.

    Would like to see the day when a full recycling effort is being made in this island. eg. separation of garbage, plastics, glass, degradable etc. Only then will we have a true controll over our garbage problem. I am sure that our good friends the chinese could advise us on how they control garbage in a over populated city like Hong Kong.

    Three posts.

    That’s as much as Bajans care about keeping their island clean – for themselves, not for the tourists.

    HATE to think what this island would look like,
    were it not for tourism up our tails
    to keep this place clean!
