The Environmental Health Department has again nabbed illegal dumpers, making two men clean up areas of The Belle, St Michael, on Tuesday.

The names were not released, but they spent more than an hour shoveling old coconut husks onto private vehicles under the supervision of senior environmental health officer Trevor Taylor and public relations officer of the Sanitation Service Authority (SSA), Carl Padmore, who said the SSA was a partner in the clean up project.

Taylor said it was thanks to concerned citizens they were alerted to the situation and encouraged anyone who spotted illegal dumping to report it, and, if possible, to record the act.

However, he again warned the days of getting people to clean in lieu of a fine and/or prison were almost over as he and his superiors were fed up.

“We’ve been consistent in opting to get the people to clean, but I have personally had enough and for the next infraction, I will be recommending prosecution,” he said.

Earlier this month, Ross Corbin and Anthony Brathwaite were recorded dumping coconut shells on Hilton beach and spent five days cleaning the area. (CA)
