Jamaican Prime Minister Pledges Waste Management Solutions

The Jamaica Observer wrote a brief article in which addresses Prime Minister Andrew Holness’s pledge to implement a waste management plan.

“KINGSTON, Jamaica – Prime Minister Andrew Holness has pledged to implement a comprehensive waste management programme, which includes the beautification of cities and townships, the separation of degradable waste from non degradable waste at source, and the divestment of the Riverton City Dump in St Andrew into a waste to energy operation.

Speaking this afternoon at the Party’s Area Council 1 meeting at the Kingston High School, Holness said the government will solve the perennial problem of the Riverton City Dump, while at the same generating jobs.

Holness said that several entities have expressed serious interest in taking over the Riverton City dump and using it to generate electricity.

He added that investors not only invest where the projects are profitable, but more so where it is easier to do business.”
