PHILIPSBURG:— Honorable Minister C. Emmanuel and his Cabinet was given a tour of the Sanitary landfill commonly known as the Dump by the Head of the Infrastructure Management department, Mr. Buncamper.
The camera crew from the Department of Communication of the Government of Sint Maarten joined the tour to take video footage of the Dump. Minister Emmanuel wanted to highlight the severity of the Dump and also express his plans to move forward with Waste to Energy.
Mr. Buncamper brought forth implementing a Municipal Waste Recovery Facility (MRF) which is also a possible solution for the Dump.
