The St. Lucia Solid Waste Management Authority has embarked on a derelict vehicle removal program. The program is already being implemented in Micoud and will be extended to the Bocage Cacao and Forestierre communities. Here’s Don Nicholas with the details
The St. Lucia Solid Waste Management Authority counted over 300 derelict vehicles island wide. They will be removed based on a priority list. At the top of the list will be vehicles along main highways and those near public institutions like hospitals and schools. The Authority will be placing a removal notice giving owners a 7 day window within which to remove the automobiles. During that period the Authority will try to locate the owners as well
The program began in October 2018. Since then the Authority has removed 65 vehicles. The Organization will continue to work with the owners. This week the Authority has been concentrating on the Micoud area but within the next couple of days it will turn its attention to Bocage, Caco and Forriestierre. Not only do derelicts provide a breeding ground for rodents. They are also a hazard to residents .
The St. Lucia Solid Waste Management Authority is hoping that residents will appreciate the exercise
