Yes to B’s plant


Share post:

B’s Recycling has finally received the green light from the Town and Country Planning Department to commence construction of a new multimillion-dollar plant at Vaucluse, St Thomas.

The operator of the plant, Paul Bynoe, revealed yesterday that he received the letters of approval on Monday, three weeks after publicly venting his frustration at the length of time the process was taking.

Standing on the site obliquely opposite the Mangrove Landfill, his hands outstretched and eyes lifted to the heavens, an emotional Bynoe cried out: “For the Lord has made room for us and we shall be fruitful in this land.”

Waving a brown envelope in his hand, he said: “It is a while now we were waiting for the approval for this piece of land for us to move our location from Cane Garden to here at Vaucluse. We now have the approval and I would like to thank all Barbadians and all the people who assisted me in getting here.

“Our next move is to put finance back in place and try to get our location from Cane Garden here so that we can expand and set up the equipment that we have sitting down for a while, and try to bring further equipment to separate the different types of material by machine, and ship it off the island so that we can bring in valuable foreign exchange which the island needs.”
