The Saint Lucia Solid Waste Management Authority is seeking the co-operation of the general public as it undertakes the permanent removal of communal bins from the roadsides in several communities.

Removal of the bins has been deemed necessary in light of the widespread poor solid waste management practices and non-compliance associated with the bins, as well as the health risk posed to residents in certain areas.

The first exercise will take place at two locations along the Vide-Boutielle Road today. It includes removal of the bins and a clean-up of the areas to be followed by a beautification exercise.

The intervention is expected to result in a visible change at the collection points and help to train the public in proper solid waste management habits as poorly managed solid waste is unsightly, harmful to the environment and poses a health risk to all residents.

The Authority encourages all citizens to do what is required in order to keep the country clean.
