The Regional Household Bulk Waste Removal Programme which was launched in Region Four last month under the “Clean-Up My Country” project has now moved to Region Six – East Berbice/Corentyne.
A press release disseminated yesterday by the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development stated that a team from the Ministry is currently in Region Six mobilizing the workforce to commence the ‘Household Bulk Waste and Illegal Garbage Piles Removal’ Programme.
Through the project, illegal roadside garbage piles will be removed and residents within the boundaries of each Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) will be able to dispose of their bulk waste free of cost.
The initiative aims to reduce littering by providing persons with a means of disposing their household waste in an environmentally friendly manner, rather than dumping them into water ways and public spaces.
For this exercise, residents within the East Berbice/Corentyne District who are desirous of disposing of their bulk waste, are asked to place the waste in front of their premises by 08:00 hours on the day allocated to their community for garbage collection.
Commercial waste will not be collected under this programme. Hence, business owners are advised to solicit the services of private contractors.
Derelict vehicles will not be included in the schedule. Persons are asked to check the daily newspapers for the pickup schedule or call the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development at 226-5071-3 or their Neighbourhood Democratic Council for more details.
The Region six garbage pickup schedule will run for nine days after which the focus will shift to Region Five– Mahaica/Berbice, where work will be ongoing from November 20 to November 25, 2014.
Below is the East Berbice/Corentyne Household Bulk Waste Removal Schedule.
