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
