Beautiful Barbados

Beautiful Barbados is being spoilt by ecologically uncaring, illegal and unscrupulous fly tippers dumping waste off-the beaten track. Here are some pictures of our beautiful island that only those of us who enjoy hiking and walking in the gullies and trails will ever see. Every parish has similar dumping hot-spots – there are way too many to include all of them here. We need to clean up our beautiful island!

    I met with some reps from the Sustainable Barbados Recycling Centre at a Horticultural Society of Barbados event in January 2020. Do Barbadians not know about this facility ? Maybe a work project could be set up to clean up these sites to recycle and dispose of this discarded stuff in illegal dumps.

    Not very pretty pictures of Beautiful Barbados! I remember with Brathwaite and Mum coming home from town Brath would often take the short cut through the Belle Plantation, and coming around a bend in the road on the right hand side would be a lot of junk, even an old rusted car!

    Please send these to the SSA and the one of what looks like a cock fighting ring to the Police along with the location.

    Thank you for your posting. It makes me very sad seeing those images. They are important to get them out and possibly have people realize the damage that they are inflicting on such a wonderful island.

    I love Barbados and would love to come down and shout from the highest places to get the act together to please clean up the island.

    Your friend.

    Good God !! This is terrorism against nature !! Have we become this indisciplined since independence?

    The photos by the crew show that a number of people are just dumping junk and garbage anywhere they want. It is very disgusting, they should be fined when found. A shame to do this on such a beautiful island.

    But, that is disgusting. I know the Island generally was unkempt with strewn street garbage and have heard and read of the garbage situation for decades. Attempts have been made to help and also educate, but to absolutely no improving end. If lack of any pride is so grossly wide spread, some sort of very heavy hand should be brought to bear. There should be unassailable visual coverage of these and all sites at these places. Obviously, everyone is aware of them.

  10. I had thought you had accidentally spelt it wrong – now I understand! It’s very sad to see this but it’s been a problem for decades – there needs to be a concerted effort from the top down – a conservation core of young people who are paid to help clean all of this up.
    Humans are garbage makers that’s for sure. And out of sight out of mind!
