Garbage Trucks Saga

Barbadians were promised in recent days that 10 new garbage trucks – urgently needed – would have been mobilized in time for the Holidays. Although there has been no official announcement by the Mia Mottley government as to why a faulty configuration of the 10 trucks have prevented deployment, information in the public space indicates that the cab of the truck accommodates only two persons and the standing bar on the outside,  one instead of two. It should be noted this government in its infinite wisdom has recruited a PR/Communications team that is second to none if compared to previous governments. There is no reason information should not be readily available regarding matters affecting state apparatus.

The blogmaster is sympathetic to the fact there will be breakdowns in procedure from time to time, although it should never happen in a well functioning system. Garbage collection continues to be a hot button issue and the government leading into the last general election was not bashful about reminding the electorate the former government had not purchased a single garbage truck during its 10 year tenure.

The embarrassing fiasco currently playing out that the $400,000 dollar garbage truck x 10 will have to be retrofitted – no doubt at taxpayers expense – is cause for concern. Given the size of the procurement order, coupled with the importance of the transaction to maintaining a clean environment, a simple thought at the time of signing off on the purchase order should have suggested that those responsible ensure the garbage trucks  ‘fit for purpose’.

All that is left for the blogmaster to opine is that any self respecting administration should immediately request the resignation of the minister responsible (Trevor Prescod) and chairman of the Sanitation Service Authority (Rudy Grant) with immediate effect. We have to start to hold our officials accountable. Given historical behaviour the firing and or resignation of ministers appear to be removed from the remit of the Prime Minister.

The blogmaster is keenly aware the political polarization that exist means that every mistake will be amplified for political gain. This blogmaster is more concerned to ask – how was this sizeable mistake allowed to happen given the modus operandi of this government in period of enhanced financial surveillance ans austerity.

Thg more things change the more they remain the same.

    Some people are just plain beyond reach. I don’t think it’s possible to ever again find two political parties that can be so successful in convincing a country that to even remove garbage or supply water is a “victory.”and cause for celebration.

    but remember Sherbrooke Securties Ltd…that cannot be found anywhere and does not exist…well Sherbrooke Securites Ltd walked into Wachovia Bank, 1100 Corporate CTR Drive in Raleigh NC where it had or has two personal trust accounts…..one with a balance of:

    $4, 589,000.66…that is million

    and

    $256,000.00

    then the company that does not exist slithered over to International Savings and Loans in Miami and low and behold a balance magically appeared in another trust account in the amount of..

    $6,155,000.00…this is million

    check out all those zeros…..that is over 10 MILLION DOLLARS ALREADY

    but i am not done…to be continued.

    So ya see…the company that dont exist but definitely came from Barbados was busy and it’s not like anyone can protest or carry on with their usual crap of threats and bullying because the company don’t exist…BUT THE ACCOUNTS DO…public record in the US my friends…

  • There is not a single Barbadian , with any self respect , who would even attempt to give any praise to two administrations that have governed a country for fifty three consecutive years and have criminally refused to maintain sewage systems, maintain a proper public transportation system, maintain a proper garbage collection system and allowed the country to gradually fall into disrepair , any praise for doing exactly the basic things they are supposed to do with taxpayers money.
    This is the nefarious and almost vulgar political state that this country has been allowed to fall into.
    To even suggest that anybody who states that no government should be given a medal for doing such wants the garbage to remain shows the vulgarity of a mind that has been completely destroyed by the Duopoly.’

    Meanwhile we see several distraction being thrown into the fray. I have not commented on the two Mottley story, because frankly, though I “read to respond”, I cannot respond and I do not understand.

    Let’s take this morning offering and ” If Not Mia Mottley, Who?”. and ask a few questions. I am asking that you answer these questions for yourself…

    Do you agree that there is no content in the text that follow the heading?
    Do you agree that it will be embraced only by a select few?
    Doesn’t this seem like a weak attempt to start a new 3rd party discussion, by first placing 3rd parties at a disadvantage?
    Does the timing seem to reinforce a drive to make Mia the most “commented”. On her own, she will probably be the most commented, but I would urge that the number of comments be divided by two?

    I would urge the readership of BU to start using their own filters. Apply i your filter all o what I say, but also apply it to others,

    You say the garbage disposal doesn’t work and the streets need repair. Apparently, there are two different islands called Barbados. On my island there is garbage collection in front of the house every other day, the streets are in very good condition, the lighting works and everything is in perfect order.

    I said in a nutshell that successive governments have failed in the areas of garbage collection systems and that generally the country has been allowed to fall in a state of disrepair.

    Below is what William Skinner said;
    “There is not a single Barbadian , with any self respect , who would even attempt to give any praise to two administrations that have governed a country for fifty three consecutive years and have criminally refused to maintain sewage systems, maintain a proper public transportation system, maintain a proper garbage collection system and allowed the country to gradually fall into disrepair , any praise for doing exactly the basic things they are supposed to do with taxpayers money.
    This is the nefarious and almost vulgar political state that this country has been allowed to fall into.
    To even suggest that anybody who states that no government should be given a medal for doing such wants the garbage to remain shows the vulgarity of a mind that has been completely destroyed by the Duopoly.’
    The now pathetic and dastardly apologists should be ashamed to attack citizens who believe that higher standards are to be set and more importantly maintained.’
    I trust that our PM would not read the faeces that those who support her are writing about the same citizens she has invited back home as she creatively attempts to rally some form of nationalism.
    The biggest threats to her leadership and success are these backward windbags on BU and elsewhere who embarrass her almost daily with their profound ignorance.
    I assure the PM that ALL citizens who love our country wish her well.”

    (BTW) Less than two weeks ago it was stated by ,I think , the Caribbean Development Bank that the Deteriorating infrastructure of the country was a major impediment of its development)

    Thank You.

  • @Tron January 4, 2020 4:17 AM ” the garbage truck came three times, namely on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.”

    If the households on your street need to have their garbage picked up three times per week then those households are consuming far too much. You need to cut your consumption. Even though I know that you can “afford” to be wasteful, the environment will not long tolerate your over consumption.

  • I’ve spoken with friends and family from St. Lucy to Christ Church, and the good men and women of the Sanitation Service have now picked up all of the garbage, and I have great confidence that they will continue the great job that they usually do as long as they are provided with the necessary equipment and decent terms of service.

    Let us hail good hard working men and women.

    My street was fixed just after Christmas, an even though I would not say “very good” i would say “acceptable for the time being” I would give the fix maybe 7 out of 10. A complete resurfacing would be ideal, but the potholes are gone, and iIdon’t have to worry about breaking the wheels offa Little Johnnie’s vehicle.

  • Just had my garbage picked up, for the second time since Christmas. One of the new trucks in use. The two gentlemen loading, and the lady driving the truck were excellent as usual.

    The SSA workers people make excellence seem ordinary.

    Hurray!!!

  • Sanitation workers do the best they can. They were only being blamed because there were no trucks and the powers that be had to as usual create scapegoats. Nothing new ; they blame: teachers, police , nurses , public servants and anybody else except themselves.
    The latest thing on BU is to curse Bajan workers,, Bajans living overseas once they can protect their political masters. Everybody knew that once we got trucks the garbage will be taken up. Then the political masters will relish all the praise.
    That being said , all citizens should endeavor to keep their immediate environs clean.

  • There is a lady on FB who is fighting for land which she claims was stolen from her. family.

    One would think that hers would be a cause for sympathy and that she would get support from other Bajans. But she is attacked daily by what appears to be average Barbadians and some of the attacks are just ignorant.

    One attacker seem to claim that no person can own land. I suspect that there are some properties he would not put a foot on…

    We cannot put everything into a political bag. If a person is a land thief. his relationship to a political party does not
    change the fact. A person can be a politician, a pastor, citizen and thief all at the same time.

    Reject the B or D model.
