SOLID WASTE STARTS GETTING RID OF DERELICT VEHICLES

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
