  1. Those men are picking up trash without wearing masks,gloves.I see one of them wearing opened toed shoes.If you have a mask on below the nose.In my opinion you are not wearing a mask.

    • Thank you for recognizing the hard work of the individuals in the photo. It shows that your mind is in the right place and free from negativity and fault-finding. You must be a joy to be around.

      • @Hmmmmmm:Only your dumb self.Would have seen negativity in what I am saying.They are picking up trash without wearing proper safeguards.They are without gloves and wearing open toed shoes.Those are recipes for disasters.Safety in all things comes first.Before all else,their safety should be job one.Yes,I am a joy to be around.Unlike your fake positive arse.

        • @Bugsy – How about you put a mask on and show them how to do it? Try doing hard labor with a mask on outside and see how that goes.

          • @Spooky: The reason for wearing the mask picking up such trash.Because the trash are coming out of homes and in the bushes.You do not know what diseases are on those damn things.There are masks available for types of works.Anyway why am I wasting my time responding to your dumb goat arse.

  2. Very good job! We need to take pride in cleaning our country ! Some people just look to find the negative instead of seeing the positive… smh

    I’m sure potters is a lot cleaner now. Good job

  3. These truck drivers will have a hefty bill for the government. I hope they understand cash tight and that means they have to wait a little to get paid

  4. Heavily fine and and all perps who continually trash our island.

    Deport those foreigners who are living here from other countries.

    • @Antigua Citizen:Are those persons you mentioned.The only ones defacing and keeping Antigua filthy.You are going after easy pickings,low hanging mangoes.WHY? Because there are many Nationals nasty as heck.They would dump trash any where.Without thinking twice.Then some like you would blame the Non Nationals.

      • @Bugsy: I meant everyone especially Antiguan citizens. You don’t have to preach to me how nasty nationals are, I see it every damn day. Therefore fine them.

        If they are non-nationals, deport them. Antigua doesn’t need any help from non-nationals in this area.

        Inclusive but not exclusive.

  5. Shows you how nasty we are here in Antigua. I don’t care who you are, whether you are born here or not. Once you are on Antiguan soil please KEEP THE DAMN PLACE CLEAN!!!
