Residents of Wellington Street and nearby King William Street in the city arose to an unpleasant and unsightly pile up, which made the road leading into to their homes impassable.
A visibly upset Public Relations Officer of the Sanitation Service Authority, Carl Alff Padmore decribed the pile up as a “house of garbage” and an “eyesore”.
He said it took four Mitsubishi trucks to remove it while two other trucks helped remove the remaining rubbish,
Padmore also pondered aloud: “What is going through the consciousness of Barbadians?”
“This is now an eyesore and it is a risk to people’s health. Something has to be done about it. We at the SSA are really upset about this because it is one thing to have one are two bags of illegal garbage, but a whole house!” he exclaimed.
With the rainy season upon us, he said the situation was of top priority since the garbage could have made its way into the nearby Constitution River. He is appealing to Barbadians to engage in proper waste disposal habits.
