SPANISH TOWN, St Catherine:

The old capital is expected to get a facelift for the Yuletide season, as the St Catherine Parish Council and the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) embark on a massive clean-up drive tomorrow.

Speaking on Thursday, during the parish council's monthly meeting, mayor of Spanish Town, Dr Andrew Wheatley, said some of the areas slated to benefit from the three-day operation include Central Village, Greendale, Tawes Pen, Eltham Park, Ensom City, Homestead and De La Vega City.

Preliminary work

"Preliminary work, which has started as it relates to the streets of Spanish Town, will intensify leading up to Sunday. The areas to be covered start from Twickenham Park going all the way along the bypass to Featherbed Lane from along Job Lane, all the way down to Dam Head," noted the mayor.

"The NSWMA will be providing the men with whippers and we will ask the councillors for the respective areas to supply the persons who will be doing the bagging and the sweeping, so there will be some level of employment for the communities involved," Wheatley asserted.

He urged residents to place waste such as refrigerators and stoves along the roadways, so they can be removed during the exercise.
