MoBay-based Reggae artiste donates garbage receptacles to NSWMA
MONTEGO BAY, ST JAMES — REGGAE artiste Nature is living up to his moniker by preserving the environment, with the donation of well-needed garbage receptacles to the city of Montego Bay.
The artiste, whose given name is Andre Ellis, on Monday handed over 12 drums to the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), to be placed at strategic points across the city, for the containment of waste.
Nature, who hails from the city says he's committed to playing his part in preserving the environment, and felt the gesture was an important one that will make a big difference, even though minuscule in scope.
"I'm planning to donate these garbage drums branded 'Preserving Nature, World Peace' to other parishes, as we all have to be concerned about keeping our surroundings clean," said the artiste.
"I'm not yet at a stage where I'm making millions of dollars, but I believe in starting small, and always giving back, especially to the people,'" he added.
The presentation was facilitated by Councillor Suzette Brown of the Montego Bay South Division, with Eifert Daley, Regional Operations Manager at the National Solid Waste Management Authority, accepting the receptacles.
Daley says he was encouraged by Nature's gesture, noting that some of the receptacles will be placed in the Hart Street area of the city, where the agency is introducing a special solid waste management programme.
