The National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) will be carrying out special night garbage collection in commercial areas in town centres across the island for the festive season.

The NSWMA says the collections will begin on December 15 and go until the New Year.

The collections will be carried out between 9 o’clock at nights and 12 in the mornings.

The agency’s Executive Director, Audley Gordon, told JIS News that areas of heavy Christmas shopping will be targeted to ensure that the place is kept clean.

Gordon says the NSWMA will be working closely with municipal corporations in the operations.

He’s appealing to the public to properly dispose of waste from their Christmas activities.
