    I was among a privilege few today to witnessed a first for Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean. B`s Recycling/ B`s Recycling demonstrated its multimillion dollar car compactor which was aptly nicknamed “The Beast” by workers.

    Mr.Paul Bynoe and Jo-anne Lewis must be commended for doing more than the government to Reduce,Recycle and Reuse waste without any governmental help. I witnessed a Honda Accord crushed to a 4ft x 2ft solid mass.

    Thus I am calling on all Barbadians to give B`S Bottle all their support by calling them to collect Old Cars, Stoves,Card Boxes,Refrigerators, Batteries and bottles.

    Shame on the Government of Barbados for not taking the protection of our environment serious.
