Thursday 25th April, 2019-With carnival fast approaching the Minister of Health, Wellness and the Environment is expressing concerns that the newly installed bins around St. John’s risk being damaged by revelers.

Approximately 100 bins were purchased by the government at a total cost of EC $ 90,000, as the country takes steps to reduce its carbon footprint.

Minister Molwyn Joseph says he intends to hold talks with key personnel to arrive at solutions that will result in the bins not sustaining damage.

Minister Joseph has expressed satisfaction at the response from members of the public to the installation of the garbage bins.

The environment minister explains that the bins were installed with pedestrians in mind.
