Did you know that......
With a tourism industry accounting for 60% of the country’s gross domestic product, keeping beaches and the many other attractions clean is a national priority in the Bahamas. The need for an ambitious "green" sanitation program may not be immediately apparent, because most of the 700 islands in the archipelago are either sparsely populated or uninhabited.
The Bahamas by itself produces 300,000 tons of garbage a year
and it is increasing every year.
The majority of this garbage is dumped into local landfills that not only use land that is very valuable - but these landfills ate toxic to the environment and extremely expensive to maintain and operate. In addition, all landfills can contribute to increasing serious public health threats and produce dangerous greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to the ever increasing issue of global warming.
Recycling is a viable option for traditional recycling material such as glass and various metals - and waste from gardening can converted naturally for use as compost. However, the present situation of the majority of municipal solid waste continues to be dumped into landfills that must then be properly covered with topsoil that is both scarce and very expensive.
Until now, there was no solution to this crisis until now. And it comes at no cost to the government. Contact us today in order to find out how we can help.
