Government urges proper disposal of debris


“Irresponsible” truckers have dumped horticultural waste at spots that have been cleared by hurricane response teams.

The Government urged people to dispose of waste properly and noted dumping fees have been waived at the Marsh Folly facility.

A spokeswoman said on Saturday: “Debris and foliage, as a result of Hurricane Humberto, is being discarded at schools, open areas like the Barnes Corner verge and at the airport long-term parking. We are finding that clean-up teams are working around the clock to clear areas and within hours irresponsible truckers and members of the public are dumping horticultural waste.”

She added: “The public is asked to use this facility to dispose of horticultural waste responsibly.” In the immediate wake of Hurricane Humberto, the Government organised satellite drop-off sites for foliage at Somerset Bus Station and the airport, but the public is now asked to take plant waste directly to Marsh Folly.
