Almost 9 000 pounds of garbage was removed from various locations across the island yesterday as the curtain came down on this year’s Clean Up Barbados by the Future Centre Trust.
In addition, 5 000 pounds of bulky waste was taken from the Brittons Hill/Bonnetts areas in the past few days as the Ministry of Health started the Bulky Waste and Derelict Vehicle component of the National Beautification and Clean Up Campaign.
But despite the numbers, the Trust’s director of advocacy, Kammie Holder, is happy.
Yesterday’s Clean Up Barbados total was much less than the ten tonnes which was cleared from gullies and roadways last year.
In fact, Holder strongly believes the Stop RH Littering campaign should be credited with creating the anti-littering awareness in Barbadians. (HLE)
