Business Place Blames Independent Contractor For Illegal Dumping


A business place was ordered to clean up an illegal dumping site after an investigation revealed that the garbage belonged to it.

The Ministry of the Environment did not publish the name of the local business.

It said while searching for old and abandoned vehicles in the area leading to Deep Bay, the Operation Derelict Marking Team observed an unsightly condition while carrying out their duties on Monday, 10th February 2020.

The team searched the waste that was dumped at this illegal site and discovered documents for a particular business place.

A clean up order was issued to the establishment on Wednesday, 12th February 2020.

The business place did an internal investigation and it was revealed to the General Manager of the National Solid Waste Management Authority that an independant Contractor admitted to the illegal dumping offence.

The area was cleaned on the 14th February 2020.

  1. most of these illegal dumping sites are created by independent contractors who do not wish to pay the dumping fees ( which they already included in their cost) . The contractor should be charged.

  2. I hope the ‘independent contractor’ was heavily fined. It’s time this nonsense stop. You cannot have people creating dump sites anywhere they please because they want to make a fast buck.

  3. name and shame dem. Dem contracted to solid waste, do they working for the government. Give the company name, make it public and make us all know who dem man are.
    Leave a man in the dark, and these atrocities will continue, give the man some knowledge, and these bandits will never get anyones business.

  4. If this picture is the “actual” dump site, it appears as if a portion of this trash can be recycled; especially the trees(wood chips to mulch for gardening/landscaping/farming).
    The Nation is in need of a strong and consistent recycling program!

  5. Why protect the business place and the private contractor?

    If it was Joe Blo his name and picture would be all over the media.

    Antigua need legislation on Universal Justice.
