Northward inmates to join rubbish collection rounds this week

Northward prisoners are expected to make rounds with the household rubbish collectors this week (26 November) and the move has been welcomed, especially by their future colleagues.

DEH foreman Debert Dawes said having an extra pair of hands will always be helpful.

“It is is a welcome help for us, because in any work situation, sometimes challenges come up,” Mr. Dawes said.

He added: “extra help is always good, so I’m looking forward for that to come in. That could help us even right now with the bulk waste collection.”

The proposal was rolled out, after the Health Minister presented it in last week’s LA session and Mr. Dawes praised the move as a “good help.”

The aim of the additional support is to alleviate the pressure on the Department of Environmental Health.

The Department said they anticipate the inmates will begin work this week but did not specify exactly when.
