Solid Waste headquarters moving to Sealy Building amidst MP Lewis’ criticism of its poor collection and shabby public spaces

As the National Solid Waste Management Authority is relocating its
headquarters to another property on the Sir George Walter
Highway, MP Richard Lewis is criticizing its continued late or
delayed collection of garbage.
For several months now, the Authority has been forced to apologize
to the public for its untimely collection in some areas.
However, Lewis says it is more than the waste-collection issue. The
Authority is challenged to keep the roadsides and other public areas
free from overgrown shrubbery and bushes, which can become
hiding places for criminals.
Speaking at the United Progressive Party (UPP) rally in Bolans on
Thursday night, September 28, Lewis noted that, under the Baldwin
Spencer Administration, Antigua and Barbuda had been much
cleaner. He says that garbage had been collected on time and the
roadsides were kept clean and groomed.
With the Browne Administration collecting more revenue than any
other previously, MP Lewis says he is wondering how waste
collection has become such a problem.
There must be something fundamentally wrong at the Authority, he
says, and getting it corrected is a good reason for the St. Mary’s
South constituents to re-elect UPP candidate Kelvin “Shugy” Simon.

Meanwhile, the Authority is relocating to the Sealy Building, farther
northeast on Sir George Walter Highway. Its last business day at its
current location was today, September 29.
In order to facilitate the move, operations at the headquarters will
be closed from Monday, October 2, to Thursday, October 5. Business
resumes on Friday, October 6, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
