Waste Col­lec­tion For the Hol­i­days

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Saint Lucia Solid Waste Man­age­ment Author­ity en­cour­ages all to con­trib­ute to a clean en­vi­ron­ment by con­tain­ing all garbage un­til the sched­uled col­lec­tion day for their re­spec­tive com­mu­ni­ties.

There will be no garbage col­lec­tion on Fri­day De­cem­ber 25th, 2015 and Fri­day Jan­uary 1st, 2016. The De­g­los San­i­tary Land­fill and the VieuxFort Solid Waste Man­age­ment Fa­cil­ity will also be closed on those days.

House­holds af­fected by the non-col­lec­tion of garbage on Christ­mas Day and New Year’s Day will re­ceive the ser­vice be­fore or af­ter Christ­mas and New Year’s Days. Pub­lic ser­vice an­nounce­ments have been re­leased to the var­i­ous me­dia houses by the solid waste col­lec­tion con­trac­tors. Res­i­dents should also feel free to call the Saint Lucia Solid Waste Man­age­ment Author­ity on 453-2208 or 450-7070.

For those who dump in­dis­crim­i­nately or trans­port solid waste from their homes/busi­nesses to other com­mu­ni­ties an ap­peal is be­ing made to stop the prac­tice. In­stead do what is re­quired to keep Saint Lucia clean and be mind­ful that poor solid waste man­age­ment is harm­ful to hu­man health and the en­vi­ron­ment.
