The National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) in its quest to rid the streets of Trelawny of derelict motor vehicles, has removed approximately 90 such vehicles from the streets since the start of the year.
According to NSWMA main officer for Trelawny, Paul Campbell, the effort, which started in the capital town of Falmouth, has now spread to all towns and villages in the parish. He made the disclosure while delivering a report to the monthly meeting of the Trelawny Parish Council at the Council’s chamber, Falmouth, Thursday (September 10).
“Up until this point in time, our operation continues and, so far, we have collected over ninety such vehicles right across the parish, both north and south (Trelawny),” Mr. Campbell said.
“I can give you some of the key areas from which we have taken up vehicles; areas such as Wakefield, Falmouth Gardens, Daniel Town, Duncans and King Street, Falmouth,” he stated.
He explained that the NSWMA is getting full co-operation from the police in carrying out the operation in the parish.
According to Mr. Campbell, 12 derelict vehicles have been removed from the Falmouth Gardens and Jackson Town areas, 10 each from Salt Marsh, Clarks Town, Wakefield and Calabar, nine from Bunkers Hill, 7 from Daniel Town, six from Duncans and four from Davis Pen.
Turning his attention to the collection and disposal of waste throughout the parish, the NSWMA officer stated that with work set to start on the development of the shipping pier in Falmouth soon, some 14 additional garbage skips have been ordered.
A request has also been submitted to the NSWMA in Kingston, for an additional garbage disposal truck, all to be placed in Falmouth.
He explained that the order is based on projections surrounding the level of waste generation expected to take place, as a result of the cruise ship pier development project.
