Jeremie Street garbage chute to be removed

Castries, March 1, 2018 – The Castries Constituency Council solicits the full support and co-operation of the general public as it embarks on the permanent removal/demolition of the large garbage chute located on Jeremie street.

The removal of the chute takes place on Friday March 2, 2018 from 11:00 am and is essential in light of the health risk, widespread non-compliance, and poor waste management practices.

Thereafter, a clean-up of the area will be conducted, to be followed by a beautification and green-space exercise which forms part of the new Clean City Campaign where over 100 garbage bins will be placed throughout the capital.

According to Mayor Peterson D. Francis, the intervention is expected to effect a visible transformation of the area and Castries in general.

“Removing the chute would assist the public in proper waste disposal practices, as poorly-managed waste particularly in the city is unsightly, damaging to the environment, and poses a health risk to all. We need to change the modus operandi and it no longer can be what we are accustomed to,” explained Mayor Francis.

The Castries Constituency Council encourages all citizens to do what is required in order to keep the city clean.



  1. It was time. The place sinking too much and add to it its not healthy for the passengers and bus drivers of the bus stop. The vagrants themselves always there using their bowels and also will reduced the rodents situation

  2. This place wasn’t a good place among people and that will also reduce the rodents situation

  3. “We need to CHANGE the modus operandi and it no longer can be what we are accustomed to” So true!!

    A man with common sense who actually cares. The best Mayor the City has ever had.

  4. Only pigs would think and tolerate that place as a suitable site to dump garbage!!!
    Keep up the fantastic work Mr Mayor!

  5. The Mayor is a man of action. He is exactly who the country needs. Men of deeds and not of empty rhetoric. If all the Ministers of Government were proactive as the Mayor, what a wonderful place St. Lucia would be. Mayor Francis for Prime Minister!
