The Government of Barbados has set up a Relief Board with respect to the Garbage and Sewage Contribution (GSC) Levy.
Householders or organizations who wish to apply to the Relief Board may collect Waiver Application Forms from the Barbados Water Authority’s (BWA) Headquarters, The Pine, St. Michael and its Customer Service Centre, Probyn Street, Bridgetown.
Persons may also collect forms from the administration section of the Sanitation Service Authority (SSA), 2nd floor National Petroleum Corporation’s Building, Wildey, St. Michael, and all Post Offices.
Other collection points include the National Assistance Board (NAB), Country Road, St. Michael; Barbados Council for the Disabled, Harambee House, The Garrison, St. Michael; the National Disability Unit, Dalkeith Road, St. Michael; and the Welfare Department, Weymouth Corporate Centre, Roebuck Street, Bridgetown. Forms may also be downloaded from the BWA’s website.
Forms are currently available for collection from the BWA outlets and the SSA, however, they may be obtained from the other collection points from Wednesday, November 21.
Members of the public are asked to note that on completing the Waiver Application Form, it should be submitted only to The Garbage and Sewage Contribution Relief Board, BWA, Pine Commercial Estate, Pine, St. Michael; the NAB; the Barbados Council for the Disabled; the National Disability Unit or the Welfare Department; or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Relief Board has the sole discretion to determine whether or not a certificate will be granted after reviewing all circumstances of the applicant(s). Once approved, the Secretary of the Board will contact the householder or organization.
Any person or organization that knowingly makes an application that is false, is guilty of an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine of $1,000 or to imprisonment for 12 months, or both.
