Ensure your garbage is disposed at landfill; Nevis Solid Waste Management Authority GM tells public

NIA CHARLESTOWN NEVIS (OCTOBER 09, 2015) — General Manager of the Nevis Solid Waste Management Authority  (NSWMA) Andrew Hendrickson says the troubling issue of illegal dumping is a regular activity on Nevis and he is urging persons who use private truckers, to dispose of their garbage, to ensure that it is done at the Long Point landfill and not elsewhere.
 
Hendrickson gave the advice during an interview with the Department of Information on October 08, 2015, following the discovery of illegal dumping in an area at Nugent Heights.
 
 “It appears that there are many truckers who are taking jobs from clients to clean their premises and most of those jobs are hand loaded jobs, removing household items… to be taken to the landfill, once collected, but it appears that the truckers are not coming to the landfill and they are still collecting payment for landfill tipping fees…
