THE CONCERNED CITIZENS OF
St. David’s and the greater Island wide Community are holding the second of three Town Hall Meetings on Thursday, November 24th at 6:30 p.m. at Clearwater Middle School.
The meetings are to inform the public and seek clarity from Government officials of the following issues:
– An Environmental Impact Assessment was not produced nor required for the approval of the development and building applications for a medical waste incineration plant. Being as this site is
zoned industrial and far enough away from any residential areas it was approved
– Medical Waste Collection contract between BHB and MediWaste – this is a sole sourced contract signed for 10 years that was not put out for a Request For Proposal (RFP) and has/will significantly increase the costs of everyone’s medical care and insurance coverage on the island.
– Storage of medical waste in shipping containers located on Carter’s Bay Road, since February of this year. The contract with MediWaste was awarded without a physical plant built and thiscollection of biohazard waste will only grow over the coming months.
The Minister of Public Works, Col. Burch, has agreed to come to address the concerns of the public at this meeting.
The Concerned Citizen’s group are a collective, bi-partisan group of individuals who are concerned about
the approved build and storage of a Medical Waste facility in St. David’s.
