“Waste collection is ongoing, however, if your garbage is not collected at the normal time, the public is advised to leave correctly bagged waste, preferably in lidded bins, out for collection later today or tomorrow.

“The Department apologises for any inconvenience and is working to resolve the issue and resume regularly scheduled waste collection as soon as possible.”

    Come on Colonel. Pull your head of your butt and do something. You are a waste of time and manpower.

    Again, instead of just giving people free handouts put them to work where we can and where there are resource shortages!!!!

    Bermuda really is falling apart.

    Trash collection was cut from twice a week to once a week with no reduction in staff and they still can’t manage that.

    Grocery store shelves are bare.
    Bus runs are cancelled by the dozens every day
    Roads are in such bad shape, in other countries they would be considered hazards

        There’s a number of areas west of Paget that are of great concern . Two stretches that spring to mind are immediately west of Waterlot on Middle Road where there has long been fractures in the tarmac of the eastbound lane and a wall on that fault has recently caved in and just a bit further west are faults and fractures in the eastbound lane at Black Bay. That entire area is a giant sand bank and gets more and more unstable every time there’s a heavy rain. I’m just waiting for it to unexpectedly collapse one day when a loaded water truck or a fuel tanker goes over it . Either of those two spots will result in traffic mayhem for weeks in a worse care scenario , and that’s hoping that no-one is killed when it happens.

    Post, call, write, email, fax…. I am still waiting for my MP to get her feet in place in my community. Only time you see MP in this area canvassing or a funeral.

    This is what you get with political leadership entrenched in the labour movement, no accountability in the civil service and a debt we cannot service.

    20 years of PLP has led to this point. Utter incompetence and failure.
