‘Operations May Result In Unpleasant Odors’

January 22, 2020

The Biannual Septage Disposal Operations next week “may result in unpleasant odors experienced in the residential areas surrounding the Marsh Folly Composting Facility.”

A government spokesperson said, “The Ministry of Public Works is advising that during the week of 27 January 2020, it will conduct its Biannual Septage Disposal Operations.

“These operations may result in unpleasant odors experienced in the residential areas surrounding the Marsh Folly Composting Facility. Despite the unpleasant odor, the Ministry assures there is no environmental risk to area residents.

“For the public’s reference, the operations process is as follows: The Tynes Bay Septage Receiving Facility collects residential and commercial cesspit waste from around the Island.

“Every six months, the Tynes Bay Septage Receiving Facility is required to remove these waste solids and transport them to Marsh Folly. The Ministry uses the best health and safety and environmental practices while executing these procedures.

“The Ministry thanks the public for their patience, cooperation, and understanding while these necessary works are conducted.”

  1. Biannual septage disposal operations…ok.
    This is interesting , the whole process is interesting , could it be treated and bagged and sold as fertizer.If other countries do it why can’t we?
    You can bet your bottom dollar there is money to be made here!We just need good marketing.
    No…I mean it…here…we have a govt that can justify taxation over and above gdp…let’s face it…we pay more taxes than most people make in other countries…I feel if this govt can do that they could virtuously and vigorously treat and bag our deficant and sell it .
    Seriously we need a system that treats it , bags it , and sells it. where do you think imported fertilizers come from.
    Think about it now…you are your biggest “Asset”…. You body processes it halfway…don’t waste it!

  2. Mixed with seaweed and grass cuttings oxides could be produced and used as fuel.

  3. Seems like a waste not to treat it and utilise it.In Dubai we have men with buckets that do nothing butt follow the Camel’s all day every day…the waste is then processed into fuel.
