Press Release:– Castries, St. Lucia, September 11, 2019 – In response to the concerns of the residents of the CDC blocks located on Jn Baptiste Street and Darling Road, the Castries Constituency Council has agreed to discontinue its use of the residential garbage disposal facility located near the CDC block.
This means that the council’s sanitation workers will no longer dump garbage there but allow it to be used solely by residents.
The decision to use the residential garbage dump site was a temporary measure to allow for ease of access by our sanitation teams.
We at the Castries Constituency Council understand fully the added health risks and poor waste management practices associated with the use of the site by our sanitation workers and as a result will, effective today, September 12, 2019, suspend its use by the workers.
The Castries Constituency Council wishes to thank the CDC residents for their patience and cooperation during this time and encourages all to continue working towards a clean city.
