  1. Not a joke

    I hope ya’ll don’t think this is a joke. It’s great that the government is telling people when they can put out things like this.. and what areas for collection. Most people just take there items of this nature to the nearest gully or canefield and dump them. It’s not like in the US, where most cities have some type of regular bulk trash pickup.. the SSA will not pick up most things on a good day.. so this is really great…

  2. Thank you, SSA & BFP

    This is a wonderful SERVICE that both BFP and SSA are performing for Barbados.
    Thank you, both.

    This collection service has been necessary for DECADES now but it’s finally happening..!
    I guess the present DENGUE outbreak has much to do with getting it done?

    Must have been some rumor about dengue being bad for tourism, wonder when the collection is going to get around for the rest of us and if it will be a regular thing once the elections are over.

  4. This is an ongoing process throughout the island, this year – we were by Kensington in February; Pine/Wildey in June/July and the DEO’s St George North in August

    Ian Bourne……..what about areas in St. Philip particularly those in Wellhouse , Bayleys and Merricks areas ?

  6. Wishing in Vain

    Jerome are you trying to arrange a collection of WOOD ?
    Let the electorate get the rid dead Wood from that area!!

    Only in First world Barbados would the “National “Bank provide this level of exclusivity.

    “Due to the size and specialised nature of the location, the minimum requirement to open an account at the branch will be $1000 and only requests for loans over $10 000 will be accommodated.”

    Read about it in the Nation Business section.

    Good job SSA. Barbados will benefit from your efforts.
