[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Regional Household Bulk Waste Removal Programme which was launched in Region 4 last month, under the “Clean-Up My Country” initiative, has moved to Regions 6 – East Berbice/Corentyne.
Under the Regional Clean-Up aspect of the national cleanup activities, illegal roadside garbage piles will be removed and residents within the boundaries of each Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) will be able to dispose of their bulk waste free of cost.
Currently, a team from the Ministry is in the Region mobalising the workforce to commence this massive ‘Household Bulk Waste and Illegal Garbage Piles Removal’ Programme.
The aim of this initiative is to deter littering by providing persons with a means of getting rid of household waste in an environmentally friendly manner rather than dumping them into water ways and public spaces.
For this one-off exercise, residents within the East Berbice/Corentyne district, who are desirous of disposing of their bulk waste, are asked to place their bulk waste in front of their premises by 08:00hrs on the respective day of pickup. Derelict vehicles will not be included in this schedule. Persons are asked to check the daily newspapers for the pickup schedule or call the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development at 226-5071-3 or their Neighbourhood Democratic Council for more details.
Commercial waste will not be picked up under this programme. Hence, business owners are advised to solicit the services of private contractors. The Region 6 pickup schedule will run for 9 days after which the focus will shift to Mahaica/Berbice – Region No. 5 for 5 days, from November 20 to November 25, 2014.
