Another illegal dumper cleans up


Share post:

FOR THE FOURTH time in as little as three weeks, another illegal dumper has been caught red handed; this time in Amity Lodge, Christ Church.

Environmental health officer and head of the surveillance team put in place by the Ministry of Health Ryle Rock, said the team was carrying out surveillance checks when they were alerted to the dump site.

“The team was in the area checking around and someone notified them of this particular site. We were able to make contact with the persons responsible [for the dumping] who willingly agreed to clean the spot with immediate effect,” he said.

Since the dumping had been highlighted in the media, Rock said the public had been helping a great deal in alerting the team to incidents of the illegal act.

“Over the past week or two, people have been calling to alert us of suspicious activity. So far I have had two personal calls, although I cannot speak for the other members of the team. I want persons engaging in this act to know that we will not stop until all are caught. We are also asking members of the public once they see illegal activity to contact us at 417-2150 so we can execute and deal with the situation promptly,” he said. (RA)
