Less garbage on highway
BARBADIANS SEEM TO be getting the message of not littering.
And the proof of that, said Andrew Clarke, project coordinator of the Adopt-A-Km Community Highway Programme, is the reduced amount of garbage being removed from the ABC Highway by their teams.
He said they collected about 40 bags of litter from their first clean-up of the five kilometre stretch between Graeme Hall roundabout and Newton roundabout when they first started six weeks ago.
However, they only collected between 10 to 12 bags of litter last weekend during their clean-up of the same area.
“The message seems to be getting through,” said Clarke yesterday.
Calling this a positive sign, Clarke said that between the regular cutting of the grass on the verges along the highway where they are working to install advertising signs, their teams had also been picking up less litter.
Clarke said too that the build-up of debris and cuttings just along the fence of the Deighton Griffith School would soon be cleared. He said this was an eyesore for them just as much as the residents and commuters and assured it would soon be removed. (SP)
