Scrap metal resumption poses no threat
2012-12-21 13:04:49 | with audio | (0 Comments)
The President of the Scrap Metal Federation Jonathan Aarons is seeking to assure the public that the resumption of the trade does not pose a threat to private and public infrastructure and equipment.
The trade was banned last year amid increased reports of widespread theft.
Telecommunications company, LIME in particular complained that it suffered millions in losses because of the activities of scrap metal thieves.
However today, Aarons said having met with the Minister of Industry, Anthony Hylton, said he is convinced that the measures in place to regulate the trade are among the most stringent in the Caribbean.
Aarons said he is happy the ministry didnít allow the trade to die, but he says he is aware the new regulations will put some of his members out of business.
