Forever a mountain

For all of the talk about reforming how Cayman handles its garbage, the emphasis has been on taming mount trashmore.
But there’s one thing that needs to be remembered, even as the dump is eventually closed and capped.
It will still be a mountain.

The integrated solid waste management plan notes that mining the landfill, to reduce its size, was one option.  After all, it first opened in the 1960’s, and there could be plenty of recyclable matter inside.
But for various environmental reasons, government did not support tearing into the mountain.

“The impacts rising from that sort of operation in terms of noise, dust, excetera, aren’t worth doing so we will remediate the landfill site and turn it into  something more attractive to look at and hopefully a beneficial immunity value to the populus rathern than try to shrink it down.” Said Amec Foster Wheelers, Phil Scott.

Mr. Scott says the long-range plan is to turn the landfill into a covered green area, which will ultimately reduce the island’s carbon footprint.
