Cherry faces more heat


Share post:

ANDERSON CHERRY, chief executive officer of José y José Liquid and Solid Waste Management, was an exhausted man yesterday as he stood in solidarity with about 70 truckers in a tight battle with Government over a $25 per tonne tipping fee for taking waste to the Sustainable Barbados Recycling Centre (SBRC).

This follows a suspicious fire which damaged his offices at his Belle, St Michael complex.

When asked for an update on the protest action, he said his thoughts were on the fire.

Cherry’s son and a senior executive of José Y José, Ammon Cherry, said: “From what we can see the whole office is destroyed and the computers are completely melted, files and documents have been destroyed and everything gone. We had computers in every room.” (JS)
