PRESS RELEASE – The Saint Lucia Solid Waste Management Authority encourages all to contribute to a clean environment by containing all garbage until the scheduled collection day for their respective communities.
There will be no garbage collection on Friday, December 25, 2015 and Friday, January 1, 2016. The Deglos Sanitary Landfill and the Vieux-Fort Solid Waste Management Facility will also be closed on those days.
Households affected by the non-collection of garbage on Christmas Day and News Years Day will receive the service before or after Christmas and New Year’s Days. Public service announcements have been released to the various media houses by the solid waste collection contractors. Residents should also feel free to call the Saint Lucia Solid Waste Management Authority at 453-2208 or 450-7070.
For those who dump indiscriminately or transport solid waste from their homes/businesses to other communities an appeal is being made to stop the practice. Instead do what is required to keep Saint Lucia clean and be mindful that poor solid waste management is harmful to human health and the environment.
