GRANGE HILL, Westmoreland — Sandals South Coast General Manager, Adrian Whitehead (fourth left), and Councillor for the Whitehouse Division, Valdence Gifford (fifth left), participate in the handover of garbage receptacles to representatives of the south coast communities of Whitehouse and Bluefields in Westmoreland at the Whitehouse Community Centre recently.

The Sandals Foundation has issued over 200 labelled bins to 34 locations in the south coast communities of Whitehouse and Bluefields. This, as they move ahead with the Solid Waste Reduction Project, made possible through a grant from the United Nations.

The bins have been distributed to schools, health and community centres, churches and police stations within the two communities The Solid Waste Reduction Project, which was launched earlier this year at Sandals South Coast, consists of three main components: public awareness, waste separation and management, and monitoring.

Key supporters of the project are Recycling Partners of Jamaica, National Environment & Planning Agency, and the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation.
