The National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) is asking persons to desist from placing cuttings from trees along roadways; these will ultimately be washed down into drains and gullies and create opportunities for flooding.

We wish to remind the public that we have suspended collection until after the passage of Hurricane Matthew. Immediately after, the clearing of debris and the removal of solid waste from main roads will be our priority and we assure the public that all efforts will be made to do timely collection of these items along with schedule residential collection.

We take this opportunity to encourage everyone to take all necessary precaution to safeguard lives and properties against the impact of Hurricane Matthew and to remain indoors. Members of the public may contact us at 1 888 253 2562 and 448 3220 or send emails to nswma1876@gmail.com for updates.
