Yup, once again Nicholas Cox has taken a position agreeing with an earlier Barbados Free Press article. It is always heartening to see that members of the local news media and frequently published writers still come around BFP once in a while even though we constantly criticize the Bajan news media on many levels.
This time Nicholas expanded upon our little article Illegal Dumping Free-For-All In Barbados: No Charges, No Penalty if you are caught!
In his Barbados Advocate piece Time to make dumpers pay! Nicholas makes some fine points about the big-time dumping and small-time littering that threatens our tourism industry and has become an all too frequent occurrence in Barbados. The problem is so deep-rooted that Bajans, argues Nicholas, need a cultural change. He shares our belief that consistent enforcement backed by consistent penalties in the form of fines is foundational to changing our bad habits.
An article well worth your time at the Barbados Advocate: Time to make dumpers pay!
