As government’s new recycling programme is about to start, some are suggesting those in power don’t know what they are doing when it comes to going green.
Recycling bins at the Country’s supermarkets were once a private sector initiative, but from the beginning of June, Government takes control. Former cabinet minister Rolston Anglin is not convinced Government can take on this task, due to a lack of knowledge in the recycling management.
“The one commoditiy that government has been recycling publically has been aluminum cans which is the only product that you can really make a profit on export but I think the public knows how well those bins have been serviced in the past and I say that very sarcastically, they’ve just not been, and it really just comes down to the fact that that’s just not an area of business that government has been equiped to do,” said Rolston Anglin
We reached out to councilor McTaggart, but he has not responded yet. Government has now added aluminum cans that are used to store food, on the list of items it will pick up.
