POND ISLAND – The Minister of VROMI (Public Housing, Spatial Planning, Environment, and Infrastructure Management) Christopher Emmanuel, says provisions have been made on the landfill for persons to dump pallets, wood, lumber, used concrete etc.
The Minister was reacting to information provided by the Minister of VSA about individuals dumping materials along the road side in Oyster Pond.
Minister Emmanuel said persons just need to drive to the landfill on Pond Island where designated dump areas have been set-up for the aforementioned types of waste.
The Minister of VROMI added that a truck was probably used to dump the items that Minister Lee addressed during the Wednesday press briefing along the road side in Oyster Pond, saying that the same truck could have just driven to the landfill to dump the waste instead.
Minister Emmanuel said this was very disturbing and that the people of the country have to do better, calling the type of behavior unacceptable and that those committing these acts will eventually get caught.
