‘No plans’ to privatise SSA
THE SANITATION SERVICE AUTHORITY (SSA) will not be privatised, according to Minister of the Environment and Drainage Dr Denis Lowe.
He said he had already made this “abundantly clear” to the workers of the SSA.
His restating of the Government’s position came while he was moving a resolution for the adoption of the Green Economy Scoping Study in the House of Assembly yesterday.
“We do not believe that the commercialisation of the Sanitation Service Authority is going to solve the problem we have,” Lowe said.
“We believe that garbage collection in Barbados is best kept in the hands of the state because the state sees it not as a commercial endeavour; the state sees it as an essential social service.” (GC)
