Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon did not name the Firm but noted that it is a “number one ranked” company when it comes to recycling and solid waste.
He explained that the recycling activity will take place at the Haag Bosch Sanitary landfill site. Meanwhile, the Government spokesperson also noted that the Solid Waste Management Act will be tabled in the National Assembly before the end of 2013.
According to Dr. Luncheon, the act seeks to establish a body that will be responsible for overseeing all of the solid waste management functions in Guyana. The body will set out certain standards that waste management companies will have to adhere to.
The protection of the environment will also be embedded in the act.
