Share post:

The Sanitation Service Authority (SSA) is getting another 12 garbage collection trucks.

Chairman of the Authority, Senator Rudy Grant, said in the Senate yesterday he expected the trucks to be in the island by October “at the latest”.

Grant also disclosed that negotiations were continuing between the SSA, its workers and the trade unions about having garbage collection seven days a week, with a five-day work week for the employees.

The chairman made reference to the garbage issue yesterday during his contribution to debate on a Resolution on the Final Report of the National Cruise Development Commission. The quality of Barbados’ tourism product was one of the areas highlighted in that report, and Grant, who is also chief executive officer of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA), agreed that attention needed to be paid to the state of the island’s cleanliness.
