Vaucluse Clean-up


Authorities have cracked down on another illegal dumper.



This morning environmental officers were on the job supervising the clean-up of a dumping ground in Vaucluse, St Thomas.


According to Environmental Officer Ryle Rock the site was discovered by a surveillance team and following investigations the company responsible was ordered to clean the entire area or face penalties.


The name of the company has not been disclosed.

Today’s exercise came on the heels of a similar operation conducted at Christie Village on Monday.



PLEASE NOTE: The individuals conducting the cleanup are contract workers and not the perpetrators.

    Hoping there would be a data base on the wicked ones, I don’t understand stand why the persons/companies is not being name, (Mr,Ryle Rock) should answer this question, why is he not naming the companies who is dumping all over Barbados..

    I hope he realizes he has placed himself in a very serious position, because if my friend harry from silver get caught dumping is he going to be let of as well.

      I don’t understand why these people or companies have not been named either. To name them is another way to combat this discussing business of dumping illegally.

    Why are we not allowed to know who has broken the law? This is a serious and unheard of thing!

    Donna has asked a good question. Who? Normally names are mentioned. Is this lack of information related to some new law or was the reporter unable to discover the name/names? Other companies that do dump legally may need to exonerate themselves. Some explanation would be appropriate.

    Company name not revealed could be a sign that the investigators have not determined that the company knew of or supported the actions of the driver – e.g no GPS or after hours, between assignments or moonlighting driver.
