Barbadians can expect more timely garbage collections as early as mid-December.
This assurance came from Minister of Environment Denis Lowe while addressing members of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) at a Christ Church East branch meeting yesterday at the St Christopher Primary School in Christ Church.
Speaking to a number of national issues, Lowe said that his ministry would be swiftly moving towards bringing some new 20 compactors into operation and it would also be implementing “sustainable collections routines”.
He said that the Sanitation Services Authority (SSA) operated with a minimum of some 17 vehicles daily and he committed that before the Christmas rush that number would be increased to 25.
