“Landfill ‘off limits’”


THERE IS TO BE no recurrence of people trespassing on the premises of the Mangrove Landfill and removing items dumped there.

“As long as the landfill is operating, there is to be security in place and security must always be there to ensure that those types of challenges do not exist.

“I have had some discussion with the management of the landfill in relation to that to reinforce what is already a policy position,” the chairman said in an interview.
