Hillside steeped in garbage

ILLEGAL DUMPING is an islandwide problem because some people will use any opportunity to discard anything they no longer want.

Miriam Yarde is fed up with the practice as discarded fridges, washing machines, televisions, computers and deep freezes end up behind her rented property in Clifton Hall, St John – specifically the plunging hill that leads down to Martins Bay.

That’s where the opportunistic appear to heave their old appliances down the bushy slope. However, it all ends up just outside Yarde’s backyard as she lives near the bottom of the hill.

“People from over the bridge side dump all sorts of things, whatever they want to get rid of. This has been going on for years. I have been here for 28 years and this has been going on since then,” she said.
