Angry waste haulers and truckers encountered a major roadblock today as they tried to intensify their protest over the Government’s $25 tipping fee.
This morning the angry private movers endeavoured to take their action to the streets of the capital, Bridgetown, but were stopped by police in Station Hill, St Michael.
The move led to major traffic congestion in the area.
Barbados TODAY understands over two-dozen truckers left their location in Warrens and were attempting to drive into town with the intention of passing in front of Parliament where the House is in session.
The haulers and truckers are pressing for Government to scrap what they described as an unreasonable fee.
