    what are some recycling issues that are facing barbados?

  • lani

    There are many issues that we face……. Our gullies and ocean and filled with waste especially plastic waste. We have no long term solution to our waste problem only short term solutions (land fills). We have very little active recycling on the island and little legislation to stimulate prvate sector recycling. Thanks for bringing up the issue.

    What is the problem with accepting the Williams proposal to incinerate garbage at super high temperatures, with exceedingly low waste emissions, and supply the energy for power generation?
    Where is this at?

  • Gordon

    Is there a website that informs the Barbados public what forms of recycling there are and the numbers for contacting all re-cycling sources?
