On Thursday, residents of Piat, Grande Riviere in Gros Islet completed a cleanup of their community, including a vacant lot where individuals had illegally dumped garbage.

Initially about ten who started, the crew increased in size as the day wore on.

The residents of Mountain View, formerly known as Fostin Hill, urged citizens elsewhere to imitate their example by asking themselves what they could do to improve their communities.

  1. It’s all good and examplary what the community has done and that other communities can follow, but sadly to say most of our citizenry are haters of beauty and cleanliness. The garbages didn’t bring themselves where they are, it was thrown or brought there by people and they will continue to do it again and again.
    Laws with a hefty penalty should be enact that if you are caught littering or dumping garbage where they should not be you pay the consequences. Until then a few people will keep working to keep the environment clean and the majority will keep littering it.

  2. Sandals and Landings need to do this at the entire entrance of pigeon island hwy,… landings property entrance is Horrible so so so so much garbage! Rats galore spreading leptospirosis smph Clean it UP!
