Fire at the Retirement Dump has Finally been Extinguished.

Jamaica News: The fire at the Retirement Dump has finally been extinguished.

That’s the word from the Executive Director of the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), Audley Gordon.

The blaze at the St James waste facility raged for over a week and was said to be the work of arsonists.

Mr. Gordon said additional measures, such as dumping marl and dirt, had to be taken to control the smoke nuisance as it lingered for days after the flames were extinguished.

The NWSMA boss begged continued persons to desist from starting fires, particularly at landfills, explaining that the practice is very costly to taxpayers ultimately and the Jamaica Fire Brigade.

“We are in the summer season and there is also a drought. The dry climate and fire do not coexist well and these fires can spread very easily and get out of control” he said.
