Act. Minister of VROMI De Weever says dumping boat wrecks on the landfills not permitted.

POND ISLAND:— Minister of Justice Cornelius de Weever, who also acts in the absence of the Minister of Public Housing, Spatial Planning, Environment and Infrastructure (Ministry VROMI), hereby informs all boatowners, marina operators, salvaging companies and any other entity or persons that are presently in the act of discarding old boat wrecks and/or parts thereof on both landfills, to cease from doing so as this is not allowed.

Reason for such lies in the fact that the fiberglass parts are extremely flammable and with the serious heat presently ongoing the change for sporadic combustion on the landfill is serious which can lead to an outbreak of fires.
The fumes of fiber are very dangerous, so the Government isn’t allowing any fiber products on any of the landfills.

The Government is busy in collaboration with the World Bank to have a total cleaning carried out of all the boat wrecks that litter the landscape, so they can be safely discarded within the next few months.

In the meantime, all wrecks should be left at their present locations for processing or moved to approved locations, Acting Minister of VROMI Cornelius de Weever said on Sunday.
