Port- of-Spain mayor Louis
Lee Sing and environmentalists
agree that this country needs to
shut down landfills and find an
alternative to garbage disposal.
This comes after a blanket of
"toxic smoke" hovered over Port-
of-Spain for the fourth consec-
utive day yesterday.
Lee Sing said the corporation
was not responsible for the landfill
but added that it did dispose of
the city s garbage at the site.
He said the fumes and smoke
coming from the area were of
tremendous concern but not a
"We need a modern approach
and we need to move from land-
fills to, maybe, incinerators."
Lee Sing said he had raised the
issue with former local govern-
ment minister Chandresh Sharma
and the present Local Govern-
ment Minister, Dr Surujrattan
"The system I proposed is effi-
cient and eco-friendly. If rem-
nants come out of the incinerator,
they can be used to make floor
tiles," Lee Sing said.
He said the country was not
showing enough concern for
"We seem almost not to care,
and I can only conclude that it
is out of ignorance.
"We live in a country where
our land resource is limited. We
should be concerned with the
impact the landfill is having on
our coastline and fisheries."
Stephen Harris, director of
SAVE ( Secure A Vibrant Envi-
ronment), an NGO with a man-
date of fostering better recycling
practices, told the T&T Guardian
the smoke in the city was a huge
opportunity for Government to
look at implementing recycling
as an alternative to landfills.
He said it is also time for Gov-
ernment to look at how the Green
Fund was being utilised.
The Green Fund is an envi-
ronment fund that facilitates
grants to organisations and com-
munity groups engaged in con-
The fund currently holds nearly
$3 billion and has disbursed just
over $1.5 billion.
"The disbursement of funds
from the Green Fund does not
match the need for environmental
conservation measures," Harris
Environmentalist and director
of the Papa Bois Conservation
group Stephen Broadbridge sug-
gested the way to deal with solid
waste could be found external-
ly. He said plastics, metal tins and
a host of other materials could
be exported and sold.
"The waste material should
not be smoking out our cities.
They should be packaged and
sent abroad to the countries will-
ing to buy them."
Broadbridge said the Beetham
dump had been neglected for a
"People that scavenge at the
dump are at risk but they also
create problems. Besides lighting
fires, they burn plastics at the
side of the road in plain sight."
Broadbridge said the country
should not have material to burn
in the first place, adding that
Beetham was not the only dump
creating health risks.
"We should not have any

Although there is no board, the Integrity
Commission continues to function, conducting
meetings and helping declarants to fill out
So said Mervyn Crichlow, communications
and public relations officer at the commission,
whose offices are on the fourth floor of the Unit
Trust Corporation building in Port-of-Spain.
Saying the last board s term expired on March
14, Crichlow, in a telephone interview yesterday,
said the commission s chairman Ken Gordon
"has been in work" as usual.
No exact date has been set for the appoint-
ment of a new board but Crichlow said word
had been received from the office of the Pres-
ident that a new board would be sworn in soon.
"Work is going on and there is much that is
engaging the employees of the Integrity Com-
mission at this time. The staff continues its job.
We are having meetings as normal and we are
also meeting with declarants who may have
trouble filling out their forms.
"The chairman has been here every day and
up to today (yesterday) he was here for a meet-
ing," Crichlow added.
The commission s investigators, he added,
also continued to probe complaints.
Crichlow said due to the two back-to-back
holidays this month, Corpus Christi and Indian
Arrival Day, those in public life have a deadline
of May 29 to file declarations of income, assets
The deadline is normally May 31 each year.
The commission was also running its public
education awareness campaign and was working
on its third edition of the "Do Right Champions"
competition aimed at promoting standards of
integrity, which involves students of all primary
and secondary schools, Crichlow added.
This week the commission will be holding
"Open Week 2013-Reaching out to Declarants,"
primarily aimed at encouraging people in public
life who were challenged with declaration forms
to seek help from the commission.
