Fuming over plant dust

A ‘GIANT DUST MITE’ is wreaking havoc in St Lucy.

Or at least that’s what Windell Hinds, of Maycocks Bay Terrace, is calling the Arawak Cement Plant in Checker Hall, which he said had emitted large amounts of dust. The asthmatic said the “stuff” drifting from the plant, especially in the last three to four years, had threatened his health.

Hinds, who has lived in the area for 15 years, lamented that his complaints to management appeared to have been in vain.
