Progress Continues at Tynes Bay Waste Facility

December 3, 2021 | 6 Comments

Earlier today, the Acting Minister of Public Works Wayne Furbert visited the Tynes Bay Waste Treatment Facility to receive a status update on the progress being made, and he said “we are optimistic that the temporary landfilling will come to an end early next week.”

“Mr. Nasir Wade, Plant Manager at Tynes Bay, briefed the Minister on the single functioning burner, the clearing of the tipping hall, the repair of the baling machine and when household waste can resume being processed at the facility,” a spokesperson said.

“While on site, Minister Furbert was able to see the repaired baler in action, which is currently compacting around 70 bales of trash per day, each weighing in at around 1.5 tonnes.”

Minster Furbert said, “I am in awe at the speed with which the team have been able to sort and process the mountain of waste that had filled the tipping hall last week. I am confident that the team of highly skilled professionals are going above and beyond to ensure that normal operations resume at Tynes Bay. We are optimistic that the temporary landfilling will come to an end early next week.”

The Minister concluded, “Regrettably the facility missed a critical maintenance upgrade in 2014. However, the necessary infrastructure investment to create a long term solution to address Bermuda’s waste management needs is a national priority for this Government, and Cabinet has approved the necessary upgrades. Additionally, this project is a key part of Bermuda’s Economic Recovery Plan and the upgrades will be successfully executed.”

    Can’t resist a dig at the OBA on every opportunity. He says there was a missed critical upgrade in 2014. So why wasn’t it corrected in 2017, or 2018 or 2019 or 2020 or earlier 2021? Clearly the PLP waited 5 years before making the upgrade. Trying to blame someone else just highlights their incompetence.

    I’m letting my party and our Bermuda Govt know that the poor handling of Tyne’s Bay maintenance over the years and the temporary dumping at Parson’s Road is high on my list of No-Nos along with the terrible condition of our roads. If this isn’t dealt with to my liking there will be no reason for you to come knocking on my door come election time!!

    Had to get a dig in there , eh ?
    As opposed to your previous life , how do you like being in perpetual election mode ?

      Perhaps if the UBP had been in perpetual election mode when Wayne Furbert was leader of the UBP he might not have had to cross the floor to be near some political power

    Reminds of the two 12 year olds being asked by the police, who broke the window? It wasn’t me it was him, no it wasn’t it was him. Stop the blame game and deal with the issues.
