Jamaica News: The National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) says adequate preparations are being made to ensure that Jamaicans have a clean Christmas.

The sanitation agency is encouraging people to properly store their garbage, and has started a ‘Drum A di gate’ drive to encourage and help people properly store their garbage for collection

Head of the NSWMA Audley Gordon gave the assurance about the agency’s readiness and intent to give Jamaicans a clean Christmas. He was speaking to residents of Greenvale in Mandeville, Manchester, at the launch of the NSWMA’s ‘Drum A Di Gate’ initiative, with the distribution of 80 garbage drums to them.

The programme is expected to be taken islandwide as soon as the drums are available.

“We don’t have all the drums we need at this time, but COVID-19 will not stop Christmas, and a lot of garbage will be generated.  We have already started to look at extended opening hours at disposal sites and we will be looking at additional trips,” Mr. Gordon said.

The Executive Director explained the NSWMA’s approach to guaranteeing a clean holiday season.

Mr. Gordon said the ‘Drum A Di Gate’ initiative would enhance the community’s aesthetics, and appealed to the residents to use the drums to store their garbage.
