Health Councillor Roy McTaggart said the issue of illegal dumping is becoming a health issue in itself.

One of his colleagues, Minister Osbourne Bodden, has already called for stiffer fines for illegal dumping so too did the Chief Environmental Health Officer Roydell Carter.
Mr. Mctaggart said he is also in support of stricter penalties.

“We have to revisit those penalties I think moving forward because as Cayman grows the amount of available land space continues to shrink and it’s harder to hide people who are doing this illegal dumping it becomes very evident very quickly,” Mr. McTaggart said.

Despite all the support for higher fines, it is not yet clear if an actual proposal will be introduced whenever the legislative assembly holds its next session.
