Cherry offers trucks to help in garbage clean up

The government of Barbados now has an option and an alternative to the shortage of trucks as it relates to garbage collection.

Businessman Anderson Cherry has written to the Government, The Minister of Environment and the National Conservation Commission stating his desire to allow them to utilize five garbage trucks for garbage collection, as he tries to quell the problem being experienced.

Cherry says his recycling company Project Recycle will soon be rolling out an independence programme which will among things see the placement of painted independence bins in some communities and along beaches. With this initiative to be launched soon, Cherry has offered the National Conservation Commission first hand option of being the recipient of these bins to be placed on beaches mostly affected ted by the garbage problem.

He is also using the opportunity to encourage householders to get involved in Project Recycle's initiative to separate waste and place all recyclables in one bag and all green waste in another which will be picked up on a weekly basis and taken to a facility to be processed.

Householders can get packages as low as $299 with giveback valued at $350 which entitled them to have their waste picked up for a year.

Cherry says a clean environment speaks to a healthier country.

A Donate and Save Programme is being rolled out to encourage persons to increase their stake-holding in Greening Barbados through this project.
