PEOPLE USING THE car park at Brandons Beach, St Michael over the weekend had to endure the awful smells of garbage dumped there.

People have been bringing their garbage to the bin at the popular beach facility and using it as a communal dumping spot. Refuse ranging from building materials to animal waste and entrails have been deposited there. The indiscriminate dumping has made it difficult for anyone to park near the bin given the smell it emits.(ES)
