National clean-up in Brittons Hill on Saturday


Added 12 September 2018


The Ministry of Environment and National Beautification will be taking its National Clean-up and Beautification Campaign to Britton’s Hill, St Michael, on Saturday, September 15, World Clean-up Day, starting at 10 a.m.

Themed Many Hands, the campaign will be targeting bulky waste and derelict vehicles in the area.  There will also be some debushing. 

Residents are asked to put out their old appliances, old furniture and other bulky items from as early as Thursday, September 13. This is to allow representatives of the Sanitation Service Authority to see exactly how much garbage is “on the ground” to be collected, said Waste Management Coordinator with the Project Management Coordination Unit, Thora Lorde.

Brittons Hill residents are urged to place the bulky waste in areas that are easily accessible for collection.

It is important for residents to separate items made of metal from other items.  “For instance, if you have old paling and old paint buckets, don’t put them in one pile; put them in separate piles because where the plastic goes and where the metal goes are two different areas.

“Persons are encouraged to assist as much as possible in the clean-up programme. If people want to come out and use their whackers to do a little debushing please come out; we are looking for that type of community effort,” Lorde explained.

Individuals, community groups, and non-governmental organisations across Barbados are also asked to join in the national campaign by organising clean-up activities in their communities. (BGIS)
