The commissioning phase of the European Union Granted Shredding Machine took place on the sister isle of Barbuda this week.
The shredder, which is part of the European Union housing project, is a major component of the initiative and will serve as part of the waste management unit.
Mellissa Johnson is the office coordinator for the United Nation Development Program Antigua Project Office and she disclosed that Monday to Wednesday will be for the assembling and training of key personnel from CBH and Solid Waste from both Antigua and Barbuda.
According to Johnson, immediately after the three day training program, the shredding process will begin by Thursday or Friday.
It was late 2019 when the EU handed over a brand new state of the art shredding machine to the twin island, as part of the rebuilding process following the passage of hurricane Irma in September of 2017.
