Waste haulers want audience with Stuart
THE WASTE HAULERS Association is reaching out to interest groups to help them get a foot into the door of Prime Minister Freundel Stuart’s office to address Government’s tipping fee on refuse that, according them, threatens their existence.
In the meantime, the trucks of the association were kept silent at a private site in Warrens, St Michael, as owners waited to see how the wheels would turn.
“We have been meeting with various interest groups which would hopefully help us with some lobbying efforts to sit back down with Government . . . . You have the [Barbados] Manufacturers’ Association, the hotel sector bodies, the private sector bodies that you need to engage with and that is what we are doing now,” Charles Read, chairman of the association, said yesterday.
