The National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) will be stepping up operations in town centres across the island during the festive season, extending its collections into the night.
Audley Gordon, Executive Director of the NSWMA, told the State owned JIS News that, beginning December 15, the agency will carry out night collections in commercial areas from 9 PM to midnight.
He said this will continue until the New Year to ensure those areas are kept clean.
The NSWMA will be working closely with municipal corporations in this effort, Gordon said.
Discussions are taking place with the corporations regarding which streets will be open for vending during the Christmas season, he added.
