    The THA is warning Tobagonians not to dispose of large appliances indiscriminately as they go about their Christmas cleaning.

    Secretary of Infrastructure, Quarries and the Environment Kwesi Des Vignes says some people dump without any form of consciousness and restraint, throwing their stoves, fridges, beds on the sides of the roads.

    He says citizens too must be accountable, and support efforts to curb illegal dumping.

    And he reminds that there are programs to help, conducted by the Division of Health, Wellness and Family Development, as well as CEPEP’s Community Development Week.
