THE Georgetown Mayor and City Council is appealing to citizens to desist from dumping refuse on to the parapets or waterways.

The council noted that many citizens have commenced the traditional cleaning as the Christmas season approaches.

However, it has been observed that trimmings from trees and other waste including old furniture from clean up exercises are placed on the council's reserves.

This is a breach of the City by-laws and negatively impacts on the general health of local communities.

Over the last few years, the Council has significantly improved the Waste Management System to provide quality garbage collection and disposal service to the City.

The council has spent for this year, a substantial amount of revenue on these services and is urging citizens to cooperate with this effort by waiting on the garbage collection trucks to remove the waste.

Those persons who have large accumulation of rubbish are asked to contact the Solid Waste Management Department on telephone number: 225-51233 to make special arrangement to have them removed.
