Chairman for the National Solid Waste Management Authority, NSWMA, Dennis Chung, says applications for the post of Executive Director are now being processed.
Colonel Daniel Pryce has been acting in the position.
He was seconded from the Jamaica Defence Force, following the departure of the former Executive Director, Jennifer Edwards.
Miss Edwards was sacked in March this year, shortly after a massive fire broke out at the Riverton Dump.
Mr. Chung says in the interest of transparency, the process to evaluate the candidates has been outsourced.
