Garbage piling up


Garbage piling up

PARTS OF THE ISLAND are fast becoming eyesores because of the piles of garbage stacked along the roadside.

Old stoves, fridges, fans, mattresses, galvanised sheets and plastic containers are some of the contents of the waste accumulated across the country.

The Sanitation Service Authority (SSA) also is a victim of the abuse as garbage was seen resting not far from its Wildey, St Michael complex where No Dumping signs indicate that under the Health Services Amendment Act (1975), people caught dumping in that area could be fined from $100 to $5 000.

A DAILY NATION team spotted heaps of trash along the road from Lower Dayrells Road to Rockley, Christ Church, where residents complained that people who did not come from that neighbourhood were indiscriminately dumping there.
