The Red Cross of Antigua and Barbuda will be continuing its Zika prevention effort by way of a community clean-up on Saturday.
Collan Moore, acting Zika coordinator for the humanitarian group told OBSERVER media yesterday that the removal of abandoned items from around homes will shift from Skerritt’s Pasture and Sea View Farm to Parham.
“We will be distributing trash bags to those in need, and we will be assisting anyone who may have garbage, and we will use the Red Cross truck and take the garbage to the [garbage] skip,” Moore said.
Over the course of two weekends, the Red Cross coordinated and removed two skips filled with garbage that were carted away for sorting and dumping from Skerritt’s Pasture and Sea View Farm.
Moore said that the garbage from Sea View Farm was collected on one Saturday and Skerritt’s Pasture residents heaped up their pile over two days.
He explained that the skip will be dropped off and left for garbage collection in Parham, however not all items will be collected.
