Irresponsible transportation of garbage

Road side

Government must be held responsible for the reckless transportation of garbage by individuals and garbage haulers.

Flat bed trucks and garbage containers can be seen with garbage or garbage bags falling onto the roads or garbage containers are transported without any covering to keep the garbage contained.

This highly contributes to the vast litter on our roads as the garbage bags are often mauled by passing cars or roaming dogs while lightweight garbage is blown all over or caught in trees, causing an unsightly and unnecessary reality.

The purpose of maintaining a clean St. Maarten is being defeated by the very same organization; government, that is tasked with granting these licenses, contracts and ensuring that these vehicles are properly equipped to carry out such work.
