Garbage contractors Puran Brothers Disposal Inc. and Cevons Waste Management Inc. are likely to resume their collection services for the city before the end of the year, Mayor and City Council (M&CC) Solid Waste Director Walter Narine said yesterday.
Narine told reporters that once the payment is made to the contractors by central government, they would be able to recommence garbage collection in the city, albeit on new terms.
The M&CC had approached the Central Government through the Ministry of Communities for a bail out of $475,635,245 to settle the city’s debt to both Puran Brothers and Cevons, and another company, Dartmouth Skips Rental.
Narine yesterday said that the two companies “will not come back with the luxury they had [before their withdrawal]. They both had five groups each. But going forward we are looking at splitting up the constituency’s clearance and in that, all of the contractors get a bite.”….
