Head of the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) Colonel Daniel Pryce is appealing to Jamaicans to take personal responsibility for the environment.

The NSWMA interim boss says persons must play their part in keeping the island clean.

Speaking on Power 106’s Independent Talk this morning, Colonel Pryce said while the NSWMA is to roll out an islandwide clean up programme in a matter of weeks, individuals have a role to play as well.

He says persons can help keep gullies and drains clean by properly disposing of plastic bottles and styrofoam containers.
