Minister of Tourism calls on fellow Nevisians to stop disposing domestic waste at tourism site
Nevis’ Ministry of Tourism is voicing concern with a recent occurrence at their Bath Stream grounds.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry Carl Williams told the Department of Information that bins placed at the prime tourism site were being used by some members of the public to dispose of domestic waste.
He said the ministry is appalled by that action and is calling on those responsible to desist from doing so.
“Items like tuna and sardine cans, dry soup packages, chicken cartons and vegetable material are placed in the bins which not only create a stench but also result in an unsightly environment when the bins are overturned by donkeys and goats.
According to Williams, the site is visited by every tourist on the island including cruise visitors who come to the island through the Charlestown and Basseterre ports, hence the reason for the ministry’s call to those responsible to stop engaging in dumping their waste in the bins placed for garbage generated by patrons to the site.
