Har­bour pol­lu­tion a dis­grace

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

A way needs to be found to deal with the pol­lut­ing of our har­bour. Sig­nif­i­cant ton­nage of plas­tic rubbish, su­per­mar­ket trol­leys and car tyres are reg­u­larly dumped there.

I un­der­stand that a new trol­ley costs $400 and sug­gest that trol­ley bays could be placed next to bus sta­tions.

A way would need to be de­vised so that, once in a bay, the trol­ley be­came locked in.

A to­ken could be is­sued at this point and a cer­tain num­ber of to­kens would gain a re­ward from the su­per­mar­ket owner.

Car tyre ser­vice out­lets usu­ally col­lect the old baldies, so why some end up in the har­bour is a puzzle. But we must in­sist that all dump­ing stops.
