Residents cry out for stench
THE CHILDREN are fainting, wheezing and have ringworm.
And the parents in one St George neighbourhood are placing the blame on pig and duck pens in their midst, as well on the illegal dumping of household garbage and offal in a nearby quarry.
“It’s the environment,” declared Sandra Elcock.
She, along with her sister Andrea, mother Sheila and nieces and nephews, along with Jan-Eve Brathwaite and her mother Sherald, all live at Old Post Office Road, St George. The two owners of the pens are their neighbours.
When the DAILY NATION visited the area, both small farmers were
not at home. Subsequent efforts to reach both men were unsuccessful. (HLE)
