CCC Workers Discontinue Use Of CDC Garbage Facility

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.

  1. WHATT!! CCC was dumping their garbage in the poeple’s residential community??? No no no I don’t believe this! I always wondered why the dump was always so full every day! Talk about His Worship and a clean city😱. This should never have been allowed!! And they’re coming and talk about it’s discontinuance as News worthy. Shame!!

    • Believe it or not that has been the practice since Peterson Francis demolished the chute on Jeremie Street. That has been going on since March 2018. He took all the garbage and all it’s associated problems from Jeremie Street and placed it smack in the middle of a residential area. Not only that there several restaurants less than 30 feet away from that dump. Residents has been complaining about it since it started. Absolutely incredible!

    • Believe it or not it was reality for those people for almost two years. Smelly disgusting and unhealthy. And to add insult to injury there are 5 restaurants in close proximity to that dump.

  2. Great stuff. The storage of garbage in those areas should be discontinued permanently. This storage is part of the rat problems in the city. Council should acquire disposal trucks to effect this service. The harboring of rats is a a very dangerous practice.

  3. You sound like you don’t know what goes on. You seem to be living in surprise city. Why don’t you offer alternative suggestions. We need to approach things more positively for the benefit of the country
