What A Great Job By The SSA!
I wonder who at the SSA first had the foresight to know that we need a culture change on this island when it comes to waste. This programme to start changing the attitudes and habits of children is a very worthwhile strategy and the folks who created and implemented it deserve the community’s thanks.
The following is from the SSA Press Release…
The Sanitation Service Authority (SSA) was recently invited to the Eden Lodge Day Nursery to teach their infants how to be cleaner at all times.
Lorryloader Hyacinth Rodgers told the class you have to be very careful with broken glass and told the little ones that glass must be wrapped in newspaper before bagging it for collection.
The pupils also learned that all refuse must go in a bin and placed in that bin on the night before collection, they also discovered how containers should be rinsed before placing in a bag and any cartons should be flattened when disposed.
Driver Darnley Callender showed the children a hands-on experience of sitting at the steering wheel and letting them pull the loud air-horn.
The youngsters especially loved the chance to sit inside the vehicle in addition to actually seeing how a compactor works.
The SSA is also inviting all primary schools and nurseries to call us for similar talks each Wednesday on what is best for the environment, and the SSA will organise accordingly.
