- Clerk of Markets
CITIZENS of Georgetown and businesses are making the garbage situation worse by dumping at locations being used specifically by the four municipal markets, Clerk of Markets, Mr. Schulder Griffith said yesterday.
In an invited comment, he said, because the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) is cash strapped and cannot meet its financial obligations to the contractors, people are exploiting the standoff by utilising spots earmarked for the markets.
He said, after staff clear the markets and gather the refuse at the designated places, trucks, from either Puran Brothers Disposal Services or Cevon’s Waste Management, would remove the waste to the dump site, causing quite a build-up at the different places.
Griffith said Cevon’s is still clearing Bourda Market but is not removing the discarded stuff.
However, he said Stabroek Market is being cleared, as usual and vehicles belonging to the City Engineer’s Department are moving as much garbage as they can.
Griffith said that department is trying its best with the limited resources available.
