    They can spend $137,000 on first class travel and $4m on an office building for private companies, but they can’t pick up trash.

      well your party spent $76 million plus on a race for country club boys millionaires…

        That race made a lot of money for this island which the PLP will not admit even though the figures are there.

    this is the new trashtech or is it rattech?

    Whilst I applaud the additional opening hours I would like to see a cost v benefit comparison of the one extra day’s garbage pickup versus the overtime paid to the Tynes Bay workers assuming that the garbage collectors aren’t receiving OT benefits now. I still don’t understand why the Tynes Bay operation needs to be manned whenever its open. Surely with the security cameras etc. it can be opened without the requirement of staff during out of regular hours? Can someone explain to be the rationale?
