|Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism, Carlene Henry-Morton, said the beaches belong to all of us.
“I cannot stress how important it is to cleanup after ourselves,” Henry-Morton said. “I am pleading with the various vendors working on the beaches to keep their area clean. It is simply unacceptable for any business operating on the beach to throw away their garbage in the area.”
Henry-Morton pointed out that a lot of the garbage collected came from businesses, and included discarded furniture, building materials and cooking utensils.
“Whatever you bring to the beach, please take back with you. Encourage others not to litter, because this is more than just a place for our guests, but this is also about fiercely taking pride in what is ours and protecting it.”
