Community Basic Infrastructure
Solid Waste Collection Schedule
It is proposed that a twice-weekly house-to-house solid waste
collection plan be implemented by the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA). The standard
compactor trucks and smaller sized trucks are to be used. The
smaller trucks will facilitate collection along the lanes.
Persons living along the footpaths should be informed of the
collection schedule so that they can bring out their solid
waste to the nearest collection point.
This shall be provided on all roads, lanes and footpaths in
accordance with JPSCo standards. The street lights form part
of the community safety plans. Due to the illegal connections
in some parts of the communities, there are electrical cables
hanging low or lying on the ground in some areas. This is
considered dangerous and should be rectified. This matter
would be addressed by the Jamaica Public Service Company's (JPSCo’s) current Community
