Clean Up Barbados tomorrow
ALMOST ONE THOUSAND volunteers are preparing their gloves, plastic bags and equipment as the island gears up for a major clean up this weekend.
The annual Clean Up Barbados comes off tomorrow and teams from business houses, schools and other organisations will be spreading out across the island as they target inland areas and gullies, as well as roadways and beaches.
This is the sixth year for the Future Centre Trust initiative and, in an earlier interview, executive director Cherice Gibson had admitted the teams had their work cut out for them after a scouting trip revealed a number of illegal dump sites in gullies and in plain sight.
Also occurring tomorrow will be the local version of the International Coastal Clean Up Day led by the Barbados chapter of the Caribbean Youth Environment Network. (HLE)
