Reycling in the Bahamas—More than you Think – Bahama Pundit

Last night’s powercut led me to do some reading I should have done long ago. Still, there’s nothing like striking while the iron is hot. Thank you, Larry Smith.

The bottom line is that economies of scale in recycling operations here are difficult to achieve. And there is limited public awareness and no official support for any of the initiatives described above – despite their obvious social and environmental value. In fact, the government does not even have a waste management or landfill policy.

What we do have is a secret agreement between the government and an unknown company to take over the Harrold Road landfill. That agreement is supposed to include the sorting of recyclable materials in the waste stream, but no-one knows when it will be implemented or what the terms are.
