The Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) administration is currently consulting with the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) to obtain a plot of land to resolve the region’s solid waste management woes.Regional Executive Officer (REO) Ovid Morrison, during a press conference in theRegion Five REO, Ovid Morrison (center) along with two regional executivesregional administration’s boardroom on Tuesday, revealed the road to the present dumpsite at Rosignol is extremely inaccessible to vehicles, particularly during the rainy season. “None of the sanitation trucks are going through the mud to dump… the road we have would not allow them to carry garbage into the site which is a setback for the region. So… there are persons who are carrying garbage and dumping it on the side,” he is quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying.While the regional administration has set aside $905 million for the rehabilitation of the pathway to the Rosignol site this year, the REO explained that they are looking towards a more long-term solution. The administration is working alongside the Communities Ministry and GuySuCo to locate a plot of land to develop a dumpsite of acceptable standards.More than three sites have been identified according to the REO, however, because of health concerns, these options were disregarded. He explained, when selecting a site, the prevention of contamination to waterways and proximity to residential and agricultural areas must be considered.The rehabilitation of the road to the Rosignol site will be undertaken by the region’s junior engineer in collaboration with the Public Infrastructure Ministry.
