The clean-up campaign has prompted Public Infrastructure Minister, David Patterson to identify a Community Coordi-nator to liaise with communities to remove debris and garbage, a release from the Ministry said yesterday.
Neilson McKenzie, who has been actively involved in education, agriculture and community development for over 35 years, is the person who was hired and he was busy yesterday making arrangements to have trucks remove rubbish and debris from B Field Sophia and in the South and East Ruimveldt areas, the release said.
“From my interactions with the residents it appears that this Saturday and Sunday will be hectic. Residents in these areas have indicated that they will continue with their massive cleanup exercises but they need assistance with the removal of dirt/garbage,” McKenzie stated in the press release.
According to McKenzie, assistance is readily available to communities in disposing their rubbish. The hotline to call for help is 223-1844.
Patterson said “Mr. McKenzie has served in senior capacities in the private sector, and as a Project Manager on a European Union (EU) sponsored programme. He is also actively involved in both community and farmers’ development in Regions Four and Five”.
