    They manage contracts for those waste haulers providing this service at outrageous costs.

    Our islands have been a trash strewn mess since their inception.

    Despite offers of individuals willing to donate time and expertise to get proper recycling programs in place, they’ve consistently turn a blind eye and ignored help.

    You don’t go to other islands and see the deluge of roadside trash.
    The amount of money they’ve wastefully spent, they could’ve owned their own equipment and had a proper plan in action for both recycling, reducing waste and keeping our islands clean, pleasing to both locals and our tourist guests.

    But, NO!
    Tis place is a nasty, trash ridden, eyesore mess while they get paid not to do they’re jobs, properly.
