Cherry: Govt dumping cash


Share post:

EMBATTLED WASTE HAULER Anderson Cherry has lashed out at Government, accusing it of wasting money even though there was a cheaper alternative to dealing with the 1 000 tonnes of waste generated on the island daily.

He has also taken a turn in the man behind the Sustainable Barbados Recycling Centre (SBRC), Ralph “Bizzy” Williams, saying Williams and his company owed the waste haulers almost $6 million for diverting about 300 tonnes of garbage from the Mangrove Landfill in St Thomas.

Cherry, the owner of Jose & Jose and Project Recycle Ltd, said Government “was wasting more than $64 million a year” when there was a cheaper alternative to handling the waste, if it took the haulers’ proposal to heart. That proposal put forward a plan for  the improved collection processing and recycling of waste.
