Bush Hall, St. Michael and surrounding areas will be the target of a three-week clean-up campaign by the Environmental Health Department from November 23 to December 13.
In an effort to reduce the mosquito and rodent population in densely populated communities within the Eunice Gibson Polyclinic’s catchment area, the department has collaborated with private and public sector stakeholders to remove bulk refuse from the zoned area.
Residents are requested to place bulk refuse such as stoves, refrigerators, wood, galvanize, containers and tyres in front of their houses for collection. They are advised to separate metal and wood.
Refuse will be collected from 1st and 2nd Avenue Bank Hall, Dash Road, Water Hall Land, Pasture Road, Hill Road, Eagle Hall Main Road, Industry Road, Quarry Road and Holders Land.
The clean-up will extend to Kew Road, Promenade Road, Marine Road, Accommodation Road, New Perfection Road, 1st and 2nd Avenue Accommodation Road, Military Road, Bush Hall Main Road, Ocean View Road, Perfection Road and 1st to 4th Avenue Alleyne’s Land.
Residents of Review Road, Bush Hall Yard Gap, Civilian Road, Pioneer Road, Chapel Gap, Syndicate Road, Paradise Road, Bow Road, Butlers Avenue, Stadium Road and Spooners Hill should also put out their bulk refuse.
The campaign is one of the activities in the ongoing community-based vector control programme currently being implemented in Bush Hall and surrounding areas.
For more information, persons should contact the polyclinic at 536-4033.
