GARBAGE a Rising Threat to HEALTH
Submitted by nineofnine
If the sewerage crisis seem not to be enough injury to our well being, what seems to be a mountain threat is the piling up of garbage in many constituencies across this island AGAIN which in some cases has not been collected in five (5) weeks with increasing noxious scents, unsightly environs and creating a haven for unwanted vermin.
If there is a shortage of or no garbage trucks, then this call is to the SSA to be creative in providing service to remove the garbage before it gets ridiculously out of hand.
There are numerous freighters, haulers, persons with trucks who the SSA can invite to haul the garbage away. Let them register with the SSA or its depots, be given a redemption invoice (a multi-delivery recording sheet) according to size of vehicle and be paid by cheque or purchase order on delivery at the dump by a special designated payment officer.
The SSA can call on the Barbados Defence Force and other Ministries which has a number of trucks to request their assistance to remove piled up garbage after normal working hours, implementing the same redeemable invoice system as a reward for those who would volunteer such assistance to the country.
Routes or Areas can be designated as that of normal SSA rostering or be that by the TRUCK LOAD delivered to dump collected from anywhere NATIONWIDE.
This collection strategy can be employed until such time the SSA is rejuvenated with normalcy. Garbage will be off the streets in QUICK-TIME.
PLEASE SSA… DO SOMETHING!
