Executive Director of the National Solid Waste Management Authority, NSWMA, Jennifer Edwards, says the Authority has implemented a new programme to collect garbage.

Her comment follows criticism from the Opposition Spokesman on Local Government, Desmond McKenzie, regarding a backlog in garbage collection in the Corporate Area and other parts of the country.

Ms. Edwards says the Authority will soon evaluate the effectiveness of the new approach.

And…Ms. Edwards has also dismissed a suggestion by Mr. McKenzie that emergency funds be used to enhance the effectiveness of the NSWMA.
