White Goods Collection Service Begins

The first White Goods Collection exercise for this year by the Solid Waste Management Unit in the Central Water and Sewerage Authority (CWSA) has commenced.

The service, which commenced in September 2011, has been conducted twice yearly in the months of February and September.

The collection service commenced on Monday of this week and the CWSA is advising persons to put their white goods out on their regular collection day.

The Solid Waste Management Unit in the Central Water and Sewerage Authority (CWSA) is reminding persons that waste construction materials are not classified as White Goods.

Persons are being urged to desist from placing items such as old galvanize, lumber, and other backyard waste at the usual garbage collection sites.

The CWSA says that arrangements can be made for the disposal of such material, which must be properly handled.

The White Goods Collection is offered free of cost to Vincentians.
