Region 3 residents await proper garbage disposal system

first_imgAlthough residents of Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) have called on the regional administration to implement a workable garbage system, they are of the belief that their calls have fallen on deaf ears.The calls were made in light of the large generation of waste specifically at the Vreed-en-Hoop stelling area which houses almost 50 businesses and the ferry stelling. Commuters would from time to time improperly dispose of their waste as they board the boats at the stelling.The entrance to the Vreed-en-Hoop Ferry StellingAdditionally, vendors who use the sides of the roadway to market their produce would leave the remnants stacked alongside the pavements.Guyana Times was told that persons residing in the communities have indicated that there has been no response from the regional administration on addressing the issue.“For months now we have been calling on the [Regional Democratic Council] RDC to fix this problem. It affects us, because the garbage that you see at the side of the road is being dumped into the trenches and it remaining there,” a resident stated.Residents related that at the end of the day when everyone has travelled back to their respective communities, they are the ones who remain in the toxic environment surrounded by trenches that are overflowing with garbage.One resident related that it was as a result of the dumping of garbage, the village would experience flooding during the rainy season since the drainage system would become clogged, making it difficult for water to recede in a timely manner.“We have to clean it ourselves, because if not then, you would get flood and now is the rain season and people have to go to work and school,” said another.In most cases, the work of the residents is inadequate to the amount of waste being disposed of in an unsightly manner.As such, the residents of Vreed-en-Hoop are renewing their calls for the authorities to take action against persons who improperly dispose of garbage.last_img read more
