POND ISLAND — The new dump site the Vromi-ministry has created off Soualiga Boulevard just behind the Little League stadium is an ocean of debris – a pile that is growing every day. There does not seem to be any sorting of the garbage taking place.
Vromi-minister Christophe Emmanuel said last week that zinc and metal is being separated from the rest of the debris and that a crusher is working 24/7 to compact the material before it is shipped off island.
On Monday trucks were driving on and off the site with all sorts of debris – from zinc and other junk to tree branches and other natural material.
