Public relations officer of the Dominica Solid Waste Management cooperation Jeno Jacob is advising the general public to ensure they have garbage bins that can contain sufficient waste as Christmas draws nearer.
He says persons with garbage bins should ensure these bins are coverage even during this wet season in an effort to reduce the spread of mosquitoes and rodents entering those bins.
Jacob is also caution against pitting out garbage right after the garbage truck has passed.
He is also advising the public to stick to the garbage collection schedule-meaning to put out garbage on days that the truck will be passing in the designated areas.
Jacob says with the focus on making Dominica a tourist destination and in keeping the island clean and green the onus is on every Dominica to help keep the environment clean.
