Bridgetown,Barbados.......it is not all pretty

...these recent stories are a cause for concern

Litter a problem on boardwalk Sometime ago a friend told me a story. It is timely for me to repeat it. He said, Barbadians are house proud, however humble they tend to keep the inside of their homes and the surroundings clean and tidy.



However, once they venture outside onto the roads and highways it is a different matter. Empty food boxes and containers are thrown through car windows, empty cigarette boxes receive the same treatment, all sorts of litter is thrown into the streets of our lovely island.

Gully Shame 
"It is absolutely shameful the amount of garbage that is dumped into our gullies. It goes into our water supplies; so we are actually poisoning ourselves, which doesn't make any sense," she said.

Barbados merchants urged to treat Bridgetown betterBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (BGIS): Some Barbados merchants have been chided for their “unacceptable” treatment of the capital Bridgetown as it relates to garbage disposal.

Minister of the Environment, Denis Lowe, in a strong message to City merchants, Wednesday spoke out against the practice of putting out garbage after the scheduled collection, as well as the indiscriminate dumping of cardboard boxes.
